"Blade Warrior" (CM)Print This PageUnavailableBookmark PageUnavailable

Description:
Blade Warrior is a platform, requiring the good skill of timing. Some of the obstacles require the player to be almost pixel perfect. On top of this, you have about 20 minutes to complete the game: A digital timer can be seen at the bottom middle of the screen.

Object:

Explore the many rooms/locations and find scrolls and a number of other items in order to complete the game within the allocated time.

Twenty minutes does not seem to be enough due to the difficulty of some of the rooms and chambers. Timing is a factor in many Speccy games, and Blade Warrior is no exception! Timing and positioning skills are a must, and essential practice in several of the rooms is needed, otherwise you will either run out of time, or mis-judge a platform and lose a life.

Criticism:
Gameplay is well calibrated and action is plentiful. The drawback is of course the limited time in which to complete your tasks. Many might think that the game is tricky enough without the need to be penalised by a time limit.

Sound & Graphics:

Nicely drawn sprites throughout Blade Warrior and a consistant theme across the rooms and chambers. Colour is slightly limited and rather two-tone in many of the rooms, however the nicely crafted backgrounds and enemies make up for this.

Sound is also good - especially when you lose a life; each time you die a phrase in speccy-speak is uttered- not sure though if this is an AArrrrghhh! or if it is supposed to actually say something... requires further investigation..
