OCS/ECS Game of the Month for August, 2020, is Alien Breed!

Alien Breed is a series of top-down science fiction shoot 'em up video games developed by Team17 primarily for the Commodore Amiga in the 1990s, heavily inspired by the Alien films.

The game tells a typical sci-fi story of alien invasion. It's up to you, of course, to save the Earth. Viewed from a top-down perspective, the graphics are clear and crisp, with well animated sprites and smoothly-scrolling background graphics. Great lighting effects are used very effectively as you progress through the game, such as the flames from the flamer which lit up in the dark.

Long before Half-Life, Alien Breed uses the setting and "scripted" events to add to the suspense. The best way to describe how atmospheric the game is is perhaps to describe a level. SPOILER ALERT The last level, for instance, sees a power failure and a strict time limit with which to escape from the ship. The tension mounts as the auto-destruction system periodically announces how little time you have left. The corridors are pitch black, and all you can see are the glowing eyes of the aliens as they race to attack you and the explosions as you pepper them with whatever ammunition you have left. Then you see the red lights on the floor guiding you to your escape and you follow them to the lift, on your way out. This entire level is very well-designed, and your heart will pound as you race toward the exit at the end.

AGA Game of the Month / August 2020 - Deluxe Galaga AGA
« Last post by NinjaKat on August 02, 2020, 09:21:56 am »
AGA Game of the Month for August, 2020, is Deluxe Galaga AGA!

Deluxe Galaga is a Commodore Amiga shoot’em up arcade game first released in 1993. It’s loosely based on the smash hit arcade game Galaga. Deluxe Galaga was voted in on the TOP 100 GAMES of all time for the Amiga. It got to #19, all the other games on the list was commercial games, except 1 other; Deluxe PacMan also made by Edgar.

You are in control of a small starfighter, and your mission is to protect the earth from alien attackers. When you start, your ship have limited supply of bullets and are moving a bit to slow, but by shooting the aliens you can collect the falling bonuses and get all sorts of weapons, extra speed and a lot of other goodies!

When you are hit, some of the weapon power is lost and also speed and any bonus time you have collected. This loss is bigger on the hard level.

There are double shoot, triple shoot, super weapon, extra life, smart bombs, money, warps, secret bonus level and much more to be collected and added to the starfighter.

Look out for mother ships, rockets, warp malfunctions, super guardians and Super Cash Ship!

There is also a lot of secrets in the game, you can find this secrets yourself, or you can buy them in space-shop. The space-shop will appear every fourth level, but you must have more than 50 credits to enter the shop. There are more than 10 secrets hidden in the game and some that are not listed in the game!!
