Games galore #35: Temptations, Atris, Croaker, Emotiworld, Invanoid

Tons of new developments in Amiga gaming land over the last couple of months - here's the next round.


"Temptations" is an Amiga 1200/CD32 remake of an 1988 MSX game of the same name. It's a multi-screen platformer similar to "The Abu Simbel Profanation": You have to guide your game character safely through various hazards like moving platforms, spiky obstacles, or dangerous animals. The game looks very nice indeed, it has some truly epic sound effects, and it appears to be reasonably hard to play, with some potential for frustration. Very tempting!

"Atris" is a Tetris clone for your big-screen Amiga. It looks super polished with its hi-res, hi-color graphics, and some beautiful piano music is playing along as you stack tetromino upon tetromino. Beauty comes at a price, and in this case you need a reasonably upgraded Amiga: the game requires  AmigaOS3.x, AHI, RTG (800x600 16-bit or better), 35MB of free RAM, and a fast CPU (100MIPS or better).

Do you have any idea how many frogs die in car accidents each year? I don't - but I'm imagining thousands, maybe millions. On top of that some are eaten by crocodiles and snakes, they drown, or simply fall off the edge of the screen. Horrible.

Enter "Croaker". Generations of frogs have been saved in "Frogger" since 1981, and generations will be saved in "Croaker" from 2022 on.

By all means go to AmiNet, download "Croaker", play it, and save frog lives!

Which game would Pac-Man play if he had an Amiga? Probably "Emotiworld". And it makes a lot of sense: We don't know about emoticons' typical diet, but the visual similarities are striking. They look like Pac-Man's grandchildren. 

"Emotiworld" has similarities with the classic arcade game of "Pac-Man", but it's certainly not a clone. In each of its levels, you have to collect a lot of heart-emoticons, and avoid running into evil emoticons like ghosts and angry faces. Doesn't that sound like a nice round of not-too-complicated entertainment?

Invanoid (work-in-progress)

Roughly a year ago an early work-in-progress demo of "Invanoid" was released - and the game is precisely what its title says: A mixture of arcade classics "(Space) Invaders" and "Arkanoid". The idea is nothing short of brilliant, and we're eagerly awaiting further news!
