HELP ME!!!

Postby old spacer » Sat Sep 15, 2007 12:13 pm

Hi all!

I'm really tortured right now trying to remember this game i used to own for the Amiga.

I remember that you land on a planet with a damaged computer which you have to find replacement chips for.

You can get all sorts of weapons and grenades - lasers used batteries which could be recharged sometimes and you could get food out of vending machines.

The first enemies you encountered were flying security droids which were quite easy to beat and i remember bouncing, blue things several levels down into the planet.

Please, someone, ANYONE - what game was this???

Cheers for the reply - no, it's not flashback.

It was a 3d game of the old sort where you could only face one of the 8 basic compass directions...

Nope - not Captive.

I remember that the manual had a big background story about the character - you're a spaceship "pilot" (you spend all your time in deep freeze) and during a run you are woken up after the computer malfunctions (or something like that) A freezer malfunction means that the ships cat is dead and you bury it at sea.
You manage to land at this planet - can't remember if it's supposed to be a prison/mine/whatever. To get between levels you have to find ladders and there are all sorts of aliens which have to be killed or avoided.

You actually start the game in the cockpit of the ship and have to pull out the motherboards from the computer - several chips have melted and the object of the game is to find replacement chips so you can leave.

Any ideas anyone?

Ey up!

Does the game have any music? If so, it might be in the UnExoticA collection...

Who wrote the game, who published the game?

Was it 3-D like "Eye of the Beholder", 3-D like "Doom" or isometric 3-D like D/Generation? :wink:

Thinking about food?
