Computer games are often more fun if there are two
players and this collection should keep any twosome happy for a long
while with five games to choose from. TVJAJI is a game that may have its
origins in the classic Pong but is as far removed from that game as you
could imagine. The object is to defend a wall behind your paddle from
attack by your opponent volleying the ball towards you. If he breaks
through you lose a point. So far much the same, but the differences
start to become apparent when a number of computer 'players' start to
interfere with the ball. These include Aliens, Square Faces, Springs,
Long-legged Aliens and a Laser. Each of these will do different things
with the ball. There are lots, lots more diversions included all of
which are fully explained in the documentation on the disk. CAPTURE is a
two player maze game in which you must race through the maze to capture
the flag before your opponent does. The challenge comes in the fact that
you can only see the part of the maze immediately surrounding you. A
limited number of bullets enables you to blast through sections of the
maze but they should be used with care. EXWALL is a unique tank duel in
which the object is to get close enough to your opponent to shoot him.
Your tank has spreading fire with a limited range to destroy objects in
your path plus the ability to lay obstacles by backtracking. Sometimes
the only way forward is to lay obstacles that can then be blasted away.
Difficult to visualise, this is probably one of the most challenging two
player games that requires a good deal of thought. TANKDUEL is the old
VCS classic with enhancements in the scenery. The object is the same, to
get close enough to your opponents tank to destroy it. The final game is
UNICUM, a Super Breakout variant. This is a game for one or two players
with two players playing in partnership each with one half of the screen
to cover. All of the usual features of advanced Breakout are included
such as collecting certain bricks that give extra features. Two player
mode proves more challenging than the usual one player game as you have
to anticipate your partners moves as well as your own. UNICUM is a top
class piece of programming.
