Title Impossible Mission 2025 Game Type Platform Company Microprose Players 1 HD Installable Yes Compatibility All Submission Courtesy of Sean Caszatt Review Elvin Atombender is back! The evil S.O.B. that tormented gamer's minds and reflexes in the eighties has returned in a new game that combines elements of the first two (Impossible Mission I and II) while adding some new twists of its own. You are given the task of getting through 15 levels to stop Elvin's latest plot to destroy the world. You can choose one of three different characters to attempt this mission: RAM, a robot; Tasha, a gymnast; or Felix Fly, a soldier. Each level is full of obstacles, platforms, power-ups, sub-games and killer robots. The object is to find puzzle pieces (in the form of circuit boards), assemble them in the correct manner and then move to the next level. To make things more difficult, you have to beat a running clock. If you're familiar with the original IMPOSSIBLE MISSION game, then you'll have a fairly good idea of what's expected of you. If you're not, that's OK, because Microprose has generously decided to port the original game to the Amiga and include it in the package. You're actually getting two games for the price of one. The CD≥≤ version of the game includes some nifty intro animations, but basically is not much different than either Amiga version. The AGA version looks nicer than the ECS version, but plays the same. (The original Impossible Mission looks the same on all three versions, but bogs down on the CD≥≤ when more than a few robots are onscreen.) The graphics on all three versions of the new game are nice and rather atmospheric. The rotoscoped animations that depict your character's movements are well done. (They're not quite as good as those in OUT OF THIS WORLD (Another World) or FLASHBACK, but they're good nonetheless.) Actually, of the two games, I prefer the older version of the game. Aside from the "poor by today's standard" graphics, the gameplay holds up pretty well for a game that's over ten years old. The new version's flashier, but I like the older one better. That's not to say the newer game isn't any good, it just looks a little bloated next to the lean and mean IMPOSSIBLE MISSION.
