"Armageddon" (Ocean) Print This PageUnavailableBookmark PageUnavailable

Description:
It is not difficult to recognise that Armageddon is a clone of the arcade classic: 'Missile Defence' The gameplay is basic and the graphics sparse, yet Armageddon is quick, responsive and the difficulty is well regulated through each of the levels.

You start with six cities at the bottom of the play area which must be defended by destroying the missiles that are headed directly towards them. At the beginning, this poses few problems, however you soon find that you could be facing twenty missles simultaneously (see screen #2), most of which are headed directly towards your remaining cities.

You also face the danger of running out of your own anti-missiles- which are placed in a row beneath your cities. If this occurrs, your cities are defencless to any remaining missiles that are heading towards them.

If however, you manage to destroy all of the oncoming missiles for each stage, you will receive a bonus for each unspent missile that you still posses.

Criticism:
The gameplay is quick and responsive, but there is little in graphic detail. The highly noticable colour clash problems result in jerky, unclean animation- after the first level where all is black and the clash is absent.

The addictive quality is evident as soon as you play this game, and the lack of graphics does little to deter even the most ardent of sprite-lovers!
