Title Wings of Death Game Type Shoot`em Up Players 1 Compatibility Amiga 500, HD patch exists Submission Snowy@studbox.uni-stuttgart.de Review This superb game by Marc Rosocha's team (he also co-wrote Chambers of Shaolin) has combined many elements from existing shoot`em up games. Before you start, you can select different sound modes (music, music+fx, fx only) or view the highscore table. Off to the first level, where you fly (looking like a moth at first) vertically across some kind of castle-scenery. Collecting the proper extras you can "expand" the little moth to a real mean powerbeast with really good firepower. Beware of the extras with a Skull which take away one level of firepower. Other things you can collect are smart bombs, satellites, energy-regenerators or lives. The 5 different types of Firepower can each be expanded up to 5 levels. If you catch another type of firepower, you lose your current levels of firepower and start from scratch again. The difficulty slowly increases in the 7 different levels and Wings of Death can be mastered using the right Firepower, a lot of time and experience and a bit of luck. Sometimes it is hard to tell if part of the background can do you harm, which sometimes can lead to sudden deaths at unexpected places. Despite that, Wings of Death is a good shoot`em up game with nice graphics and good sound.
