AGA Game of the Month / March 2023 - Trolls
« Last post by NinjaKat on March 09, 2023, 11:27:35 pm »
AGA Game of the Month for March 2023, is Trolls!

What do I have to do in these new worlds?..... a voice answers: "You will become a hero tonight little troll, you must find the lost babies and return them home safely. You will be able to fly, swim and swing with a magical yo-yo, popping balloons along the way". Sounds strange doesn't it?.. well really this is going to be a magical night of adventures and fun, after all.... everyone has to be a hero once in their life, don't they?..

OCS/ECS Game of the Month / March 2023 - Kid Gloves II
« Last post by NinjaKat on March 09, 2023, 11:08:30 pm »
OCS/ECS Game of the Month for March 2023, is Kid Gloves II!

Reviewed in Amiga Format - March 1992

So Kid has hung up his gloves.

After his death-defying adventures, Kid finally made it home to safety, and put away his magic boxing gloves. Storing them in the dark recesses of his attic (along with his baseball cap), he vowed to forget the gloves and their supernatural properties.

But as time passes the magical power of the gloves engulfs Kid once again, and he embarks on a new and more extraordinary adventures, this time accompanied by his girlfriend Frida...

The magic worlds of the gloves are now ruled by Wievallard, an evil wizard hungry for power and pleasure. As soon as he spots Kid's girlfriend, a dastardly plan for kidnap forms in his mind, and she is whisked away by his overpowering sorcery, to be imprisoned in his mountain stronghold.

Now Kid is searching the mysterious magic worlds, hot on the trail of his beloved girlfriend and the wizard Wievallard. Your task is to help Kid in his undertaking - but beware of the evils that abound in this arcane world of magic and mystery!
