Storm

Storm is an attempt to implement a Gauntlet-style game on the good old Speccy - yes another one. Unfortunately, whilst I admire the sentiment, the game itself falls decidedly short of the mark. Briefly, the idea of the game is to penetrate an underground labyrinth and rescue Storm's wife. The game can be played by either one or two players. If two players are playing then both Agravain the Undead and Storm can be used simultaneously, each being controlled by different parts of the keyboard.

The game is fairly standard aracade adventure format with items to find and baddies to kill. Unfortunately the action is viewed from above and the graphics are a bit too chunky to make the game special.

Overall, a nice idea but poorly implemented.
