"Agent X" (MAD) Print This PageUnavailableBookmark PageUnavailable

Description:
THE president's brain is about to be brainwashed. We're standing on the brink of WWIII and there's only one person who can prevent it!

Meet Agent X..

A well designed, multi-layereed action arcade. The game is structured into four very different scenarios- each of them well constructed and complimenting each other. It would have been difficult to design such a game without spending a considerable amount of time in keeping the overall theme of the game integrity intact. But this has been done nicely throughout and the gameplay in each level is good.

Scenarios / Levels:
1. Highway adventures, avoiding Tanks, Police & Trucks.
2. Enter the secret lair and beat nasties by jumping/kicking
3. 3D shooter - Shoot the missiles from the inner chamber
4. Fly a helicopter, whilst shooting jetpacs and missiles

Overall

Each of the levels are a game worthy of publication of their own as they are well written, gameplay is well thought out and the graphics are well drawn.


Object:

TRAVEL though each of the stages as Agent X and complete each of the individual games - there are four. Complete all the stages and retreive the bomb at the end of level four and bring it back.

Criticism:
DUE to the nature of the game levels, you must load each level prior to play. Being tape-driven, this was of course a chore and time-consuming and took something from the overall action. However, the games were still good, the action was smooth and gameplay consistant, so it was of little concern initially.
