The lengths of jumps are variable, depending on how long the joystick is pushed down for. Bonus items to be collected include rotor blades, to allow flight. Bob cannot kill his enemies, but can temporarily stun them, by hurling his ball of string at them.

Armada

Armada

Commodore Amiga - Released - 1989

In 1588 Spain was the World's superpower. With massive wealth brought across the Atlantic from the Caribbean, and an army that was widely regarded as the toughest and most efficient in Europe, few could stand in its way. It was certainly the only power that would consider an amphibious attack on a well populated and modern country, England, over 1,000 miles from a home port. As in Waterloo, also programmed by this team, you can play the war from both points of view. If you choose to play the English you take the role of Lord Howard, the Spanish commander is Medina Sidonia. You have control...

Badlands Pete

Badlands Pete

Commodore Amiga - Released - 1990

The gouvernor's daughters were kidnapped and he hires the desperado Badlands Pete to get them back. The player takes the role of Pete, walks through the side-scrolling levels and shoots everything that moves. This is to be taken literally because the enemies are not restricted to the usual bandits; there are also other people like old ladies which try to land a hit. To be fair, these are mostly encountered when Pete uncalled enters their houses by using the so-called "Strip-A-Motion" feature. This basically means that Pete can walk "inside" the screen to enter houses or walk behind...

The Go-Moku (or also called Gomoku) board game is played on a 15x15 board with each player is allowed to place one stone at a time.

Hellraider

Hellraider

Commodore Amiga - Released - 1989

Hellraider is a Shoot 'Em Up game, developed by Frames and published by ARC (Atari UK), which was released for Amiga in 1989. I can’t say I was particularly impressed by Hellraider which is another run-of-the-mill shoot’em-up, with not a lot else to offer. The games manual is very large, and there’s a huge section describing the story behind the game, but after you’ve read it you’ll do exactly the same as before, and shoot anything that isn’t you. The controls are very awkward, and moving in to the right position to fire at something can become annoying. The graphics is well defined, but...

The main section of each level takes place above the surface of one of the lifeless planets, and plays like a Defender-style shoot-'em-up.
