Skooter is a fun freeware remake of an oldie puzzle game for the MSX computer. In the author's words, "[this] remake was made in the most faithful way possible, with slighly modified graphics. The objective is simple: control your Skooter robot and get the four screen items to complete the sixteen levels. Use the arrow keys and space (joystick also supported). Space destroys green blocks. Red blocks cannot be destroyed. Arrow blocks move by themselves. Diamond blocks can be pushed. Blue arrows push items (only when they are not blocked)." |
Skooter is reminiscent of Epyx's classic Chip's Challenge, although shorter and not nearly as challenging. It is still a lot of fun, though, especially since most levels are designed cleverly enough to make you think of the right 'order' of moves to finish each level. The limited number of objects and obstacles also make the challenge more focused and the game easier to learn than most puzzlers. Recommended to fans of turn-based, third-person brainteasers.
