Good conversion of the Amiga game. Ugh! is a neat clone of Space Taxi, a great Commodore 64/Amiga classic that was never ported on the PC. Instead of a future scenario, Ugh! is set in the direct opposite time period: the prehistoric era. |
As Space Taxi, Ugh! is all about flying around in single-screen 2D landscapes, picking up fares and flying them to wherever they want to go. What makes Ugh! a lot of fun is the devious levels with different architecture, number and type of passengers and obstacles such as snoring dinosaurs and water. Each level has a tree that can be bombarded for food to keep your energy bar filled.
Ugh! requires both reflexes and careful planning to succeed. The levels will start off very easy, but once you begin to get used to the controls, you will be presented with much harder challenges. Space Taxi fans will find Ugh! incredibly addictive, both as a solo and a multiplayer game. Two thumbs up, way up!
