you haven't read part 1 yet, you probably
should. Although I can't think of a reason why.
Game Played: Island of Mystery Adventure
game has alot of text, and for the barely literate like our
friend C-Rad from CnJ's,
this game was pure hell. It's not known were this game came
from and why it's on my hard drive, but one might speculate
that it's origins are from before the time of colour and pictures.
the jist of the game. You're stranded on an island of mystery
and quite possibly adventure, but I have yet to find any ot
these things. You have to get off the island before the approaching
and very deadly (presumably) Tsunami reaches the island. You
are allowed 500 turns and then you die.
my strategy, and don't any of you steal it! Don't move. You
don't lose, but you don't win either. It's what I like to
call the "happy medium".
also figured out a cheat for this game. If you type QUIT
seems to exit. I can only assume that this is because QUIT
win-the-game cheat. Once I win, the game has
no reason to run anymore and thusly (doubt that's a word)
Game Player: Round 42
galactic invader in search of sandwiches and love.
this game, on the other hand, has pictures and colours.
Some of the best I've seen on the Tandy 1000.
premise of this game is to blow stuff up. Story? Who the hell
cares, this game kicks ass! Consisting of 42 levels of pure
arcade shooter enjoyment. Each level you're up against a new
type of enemy possibly trying to steal your sandwich. Who
knows? There's no story!
fight off these invading umm... invaders, you've got two weapons
in your arsenal. You've got your standard kick ass blaster
cannon type thing, and then you've got your kick-motherfucking-ass,
auto-targeting lightning bolts FROM HELL thing! You've only
got a few of these lightning bolts though, so use them wisely.
fifth level or so you've got to navigate your ship through
some sort "wanted to be a maze but never mastered dead
ends" thing without hitting the walls. Sounds easy, sure,
but if it's your first time and you don't know what you're
doing, and you're suffering from some sort of autism,
you're heading straight into that wall.
sounds? Let's just say if the sounds were sex, I'd be having
24 orgasms per minute. What this game makes a PC speaker
do is nothing short of phenomenal. But don't take my word
for it, try it yourself! (and get a towel)
