Obliterator is a fun early side-scrolling platformer from Psygnosis that is notable for being the first Psygnosis game to include music (although the PC speakers, naturally, pale in comparison to Commodore 64 version). |
This sci-fi platformer features huge, highly levels, and great graphics that unfortunately looks better than it plays. Your task is basically to run along the corridors of a dying spaceship, looking for spare parts with which to fix your shuttle (and thus escape) while taking on hordes of impressive-looking but hardly-animated-at-all aliens. An unusual icon-controlled control system works well, but gameplay is quite repetitive, and doesn?t rise above the typical shoot-everything-in-sight fare that action fans have seen all too many times.
