Games To Avoid #1
A feature of most computer magazines a few years ago were readers' listings of games in BASIC (still around, of course, but now a little more sophisticated), most of which were variants of Frogger, Invaders or Bomber. The last was one of the earliest computer games ever created (just after Bat And Ball I would think) and consisted of trying to drop bombs from a plane moving left to right onto skyscrapers, before the plane moved down the screen and crashed into the buildings.
As a listing it was boring, now as a software re-release (albeit a budget one!) it is an insult and shows an almost ludicrous ignorance of games players' demands or the current state of software development.
I really cannot believe this release - have I suddenly slipped back five years in time? Or have Optyx?
