Another cool find: Bestial Warrior by Dinamic

Image

I've not played many 1989 onwards games like this. My first impression was it's very similar to Game Over, what is great as it's one of my faves Dinamic games.

I don't know how 'Bestial Warrior' sounds to an english spoken person, but to a spaniard is something like 'eh, we're Dinamic and with this name you know what you're come across' :mrgreen:
It's not the, er, most wholesome title, but when did Dinamic ever play by anyone's rules? 🙃

Pyracurse [1986, Hewson Consultants]

Image

This is one of the most frustrating games ever. I hate headless zombies, flying skulls and giant scorpions. And I always will.

Being a fan of Avalon/Dragontorc, I was very excited when I started seeing the adverts and previews for Pyracurse. Hewson at a strong period in their lifetime.

Ultimately I was a little disappointed when I played it - I just couldn't get anywhere.

Nice that you get to play as a dog though... :lol:

And as a damsel in distress. Pyracurse received a lot of good reviews at the time, but it's very, very difficult to get into.
The energy of your characters gets drained very quickly, the nasties are very hard to avoid, as they tend to follow you around very stubbornly.
It's also very well done. But it really takes a lot of patience and effort to get somewhere with it.

Ali Baba by Suzy Soft. Fast paced and very addictive. I ran into it just the other day.

One of the early ex-Yugoslavia commercial titles.
It was not published in England like some other well-known ex-Yu titles, although it was very professionally done with excellent packaging.
Luckily I have the original, I made inlay scan a long time ago, one of the most valuable Spectrum games in my modest collection.

I took the link for my inlay scan from here, I don't know if sc has all these boxart pictures.
