Who Dares...
By DK Tronics
Commodore 64

Published in Home Computing Weekly #40

I had a lot of trouble loading this game. In all I managed to load it three times out of twelve attempts. However, once loaded, it behaved perfectly.

The setting for this game is a house containing terrorists and hostages. Your task is to shoot the terrorists when they appear in any of the windows.

If you shoot a hostage by mistake, you are demoted. The game ends when you either run out of time or you are demoted to civilian status.

Basically, you are firing against the clock. After every six shots you have to move back to the arms depot to reload. I found I was wasting time there as in my rush to reload I had difficulty in positioning my joystick accurately.

The other little snag is that the terrorists and hostages periodically change colour. A box at the top of the screen tells you the current terrorist colour - if you don't keep an eye on it, you could find yourself shooting the hostages.

Maybe I'm blood-thirsty, but I quite enjoyed this game.
