Title Rodland Game Type Platform Company The Sales Curve Players 1-2 Compatibility All 1 meg machines Submission Graham McClelland Graham@dorrie.demon.co.uk Review Rodland has a typical platform plot, your mother has been kidnapped and you have to rescue her. In addition, the style of this game is similar to most platform game, very cute graphics. However, there is one major difference between this and most other platform games, its playability. This is easily the most enjoyable platform game on the Amiga, if not any format! The game is screen based, so to complete a level you have to destroy all the bad guys (cute rabbits, crying sharks.) on screen. After you have completed about 10 levels, you have to destroy the end of level boss. These take the form of giant animals, the first being six crocodiles and then a giant Whale. To kill the bad guys on each level you trap them with your wand and then you smack them against the ground. On each level there are several flowers and if you collect them, all the bad guys turn into special creatures. When you kill these creatures, they drop a letter from the word EXTRA. When you have collected every letter, you gain an extra life. This game is a great one player game but where it excels is in two player. The game is the same as the single player but you have your friends helping you. Things can get quite heated because it is easy to kill your friend by mistake. Overall, I think this is one of the ‘must have’ Amiga games, especially if you play many multi player games.
