Dogs Of War

After ploughing my way through eleven of these Prism games recently, it seems to be that most have very little going for them, especially considering what's available on PD for much the same price. Most of them originally came out when the Amiga was new and programmers inexperienced, so they tended to be crude versions of games that were really better suited to the lesser machines anyway.

Dogs Of War is a classic example of this. It is a straight Ikari Warriors vertical shoot-'em-up, but with the quality of every factor from graphics to sprite handling reduced by around half. It ends up only fractionally as enjoyable as Ikari, a game which here in 1992 seems chronically dated anyway. So see what I mean?
