C64 Action Replay Update

Hiya,

Here are some new AR pokes in no particular order…there are some oldies in there, Mandroid is maybe not that great but it is interesting to look at, there are some good ideas for interaction such as gambling & interrogation. The gfx are quite good overall and there is a help file on the disk that gives you an idea of what to do in the game.

The Metal Warrior series is really worth looking into, very professionally done sporting some really nice music and classy gfx…I like the quirky humour and role-playing elements – check them out!

Mr Wino (C64 review)

Hi all,

I came across this game the other day, it is yet another of countless Manic Miner influenced titles…what makes this entry any different?

Well, the scenario is a tad unusual – The title character Mr Wino  went on the ultimate bender and slipped into a booze infused nightmare slumber and needs to escape his personal hell by collecting wine bottles that unlock gates in his dream world. Mr Wino was released in 1988 but it looks as if it was shelved for at least four years, the visuals could be described as primitive and hardware collision registers are used which is nearly always a telling sign.

If you think I am being negative about the game from the last sentence, don’t jump to conclusions. To be honest I don’t mind playing games of this type once in a while, there is a strange compulsion to keep at it once you settle in learning the monster patterns & level layouts, I guess that old ‘…just one more go’ quotient – it is difficult to explain but there is a reason for the huge popularity of these kind of games.

Mr Wino’s sprite is reasonably animated, looking something like a cross between Gonzo and Q*Bert. There is not much in the way of notable special touches concerning the graphics, it is possible to turn Mr Wino 180 degrees toward the screen in order to climb ladders and this is accompanied by a small animation.The hostile things in the game resemble stuff like frying pans, gasping blobs, rotary phones and bowls of pasta, the gfx are functional and that is all that is required for a game of this type.

I mentioned the monster patterns earlier, something interesting is with most of these games the movement patterns are strictly uniform & predictable but some monsters in Mr Wino have an element of randomness, just when you thought it was safe to ascend that ladder the nasty changes it’s mind and heads back in your direction! For this reason the game seems very rough going without cheats and I played the game for quite a while and came to a level that seemed unfinished, but the truth is you wouldn’t actually reach anywhere near this section anyway.

Mr Wino certainly isn’t the worst example of a platform & ladders collect ’em up so if you decide to give it a try click here for some POKEs

Los Angeles SWAT (C64) AR POKE

Hi folks,

This is a pretty neat game where you play as a Swat guy with an assault rifle basically cleansing the streets of countless armed thugs.

The game scrolls vertically ala’ Ikari Warriors and at first glance it looks a bit like a SEUCK built game, but this game predates that program by a couple of years. There are a few interesting points like how your two extra lives are represented by Swat guys that follow along behind you & the erratic enemy behaviour e.g. if you let go of the controls you’ll notice the baddies don’t always home in on your position but rather shuffle about the streets sometimes hurling a Molotov at their own feet…these guys quite possibly could be on something.

End of level gang rush

At times a beat cop will wander down the path on the left or right, and if you shoot him you lose points – it is a shame the thugs don’t attack these patrolmen as it would have added a touch of realism. At times there is a gunman on a rooftop sweeping part of the road with bullets that need to be given a wide berth as he can’t be dealt with, I suppose grenades are not standard issue for a Swat guy. At the end of the road you are confronted with a huge swarming gang that approaches from three directions and after that a lone thug emerges with a hostage to liberate or become collateral damage – either way you move onto the next level.

Hostage Situation

At the end of the day LA SWAT is a decent and fairly addictive twitch shooter that could have probably used a few more complications but as it stands I think it is worth a look.

The routine for keeping track of your reserve men was a bit unusual for this game but I have encountered more bizarre examples, anyway

Freeze at the title screen and POKE 7632,1 for infinite lives

If you play on an emulator I strongly recommend using Hoxs64 as the game seems to have issues on VICE
