October 2022 - Aquanaut
« on: September 29, 2022, 08:53:19 pm »
OCS/ECS Game of the Month for October 2022, is Aquanaut!

This side-view shoot ‘em up scrolls in multiple directions, moving it away from the R-Type game style and more towards Blood Money. Most of the danger comes from wall mountings or static obstacles rather than actual sentient opposition. The levels are large and multi-directional, with a map feature to help you progress through each one. Power up weapons can be collected. The gameplay is quite systematic, with a measured approach working better than a gung-ho ‘shoot first, ask questions later’ mentality.

Information:
  • Amiga Hardware: OCS/ECS
  • Release Year: 1995
  • Disks: 1
  • WHDLoad: Yes
  • Players: 1
  • Publisher: F1 Licenseware
  • Developer: Phil Ruston
  • A500 Mini: Not as standard!

Links to game information:

Please refer to the 'Game of the Month Rules and Participation' post for information on how to participate!  Good Luck!

* To qualify: just play! (and post score) on an OCS/ECS machine or equivalent emulator.  Do not use keys, passwords or cheats.
