"Arc of Yesod" Print This PageUnavailableBookmark PageUnavailable

Description:
Rt. Hon. Charlemagne Fotheringham-Grunes marks his return in his second appearance in another subterranean moon romp.

Not dissimilar to 'Nodes of Yesod', but just as good. The idea is pretty much similar, in that Charlie must collect Eight Crystals and exit the game. Probably too similar to his first encounter for those with limited pocket money, and £7.99 was a tidy sum for some of us in the 80's.

Scenarios / Levels:
1) Charlie begins his quest as he did his last; on the surface of the moon, albeit a lot more inhabited this time.
2) Exits are placed on the surface that allow you to go below and begin your adventure.

Object:

As before, Charlie must collect the eight crystals that are placed throughout the numerous caverns and avoid the many nasties in doing so.

Once all crystals are found, you must then return to the exit in order to complete the game. Some room entrances/exits are hidden and can be opened by releasing a laser-firing pod that you carry with you.

Release the pod and shoot the wall to reveal the exit. The laser can also be used to shoot any nasties that are giving Charlie a tough time, and can be maneuvered about the cave for more accuracy.

History:
Sequel to 'Nodes of Yesod'

Criticism:
The only real problem with Arc of Yesod is that it was a mere clone of its predecessor. The same structure exists, the same layout, the same objective and the same methods.

However, the game-play, graphics and overall playability still stood and for many how loved Nodes so much, there was no question of not buying Charlie's next adventure.

Sound & Graphics:
The graphics are superb- well drawn, proportionate, and skillfully deployed. Thor did well with the game and it maintained the playability and quality of Nodes.
