Title Leander Game Type General Action Players 1 Compatibility Amiga 500 Submission Snowy@studbox.uni-stuttgart.de Review Don`t let yourself be impressed by the supersmooth scrolling of the background. If you think the "Beasts" from Reflections made it, you are wrong. Andy Ingram and Jon Burton programmed this masterpiece. Up to 60 Sprites on screen at the same time, need I say more? What is this game about. The usual. Princess Lucanna was kidnapped and now our hero must fight through 3 Worlds/22 Levels. For this mission Leander, our hero, is well prepared and what he does not have, he may gain during play. His armour can be upgraded six times and the colour of the armour can tell you how many hits Leander can take. All sorts of weapons can be found, from a simple knife up to a Lionsword, Runebombs and a specialty, the self-desctruct and kill everything else bomb. While playing you might run into a shop where you can buy all sorts of things, provided you have collected enough money while finding treasures and looking at dead enemies. Leander is controlled via Joystick and it is a bit like "Strider", and even if you sometimes think so, Leander isn`t an unplayable graphics demo. What you miss is the Psygnosis-typical Intro and Outro and the sound effects are not what you might expect to be when you see how much work was put into the graphics part of the game. Although you do not notice that too much since the ingame music distracts you from that.
