Bank Buster

Commodore Amiga - Released - 1988

The only way to break into a well-stocked bank is to head underground, and smash your way through layer after layer of earth. This makes for a game influenced by Breakout, but with many subtleties of its own. You have full control over the bat, able to move up and down as well as left and right. The latter can be useful as only part of the bottom of the screen actually results in the ball going out of play - a wall protects much of the floor. There are inbuilt trees which can't be played through, and dynamite sticks which can clear large sections of earthing at a time.

This game consists of a series of puny sub-games, almost all of which seem to be entirely unplayable. The first of these makes you attempt to put together a gun by moving a band of weapon pieces so they are hit by bullets. Half of the pieces are hit by bullets within the first few seconds of them being on the screen, so you loose this almost instantly. The second sub-game is one of those police training shoot things where various cardboard gangsters and civilians slide along the...

Leather Skirts

Microsoft MSX2 - Released - 1987

The game is played in a maze in which leather skirts must be collected. In the maze you will also find restaurants, bars and you can visit the red-light district. All in all, promising, but we were surprised when it turned out that overview of the maze image remains with also the locations where the above mentioned places can be found. We also had the game played out within half an hour because you simply have to follow the lines on the overview map. Reach one of the locations, you will get one nice picture to see. The graphics are smooth but the sound is almost completely missing as well as...
