Not a huge haul this month, but I did get a few games and a couple of boxed consoles so I can’t really complain too much.

Galaxian – Atari 2600

Galaxian is a shoot ’em up in which the player is at the bottom of the screen, with an arrangement of aliens at the top. The player moves left and right to aim at an alien, then shoots a bullet up the screen, and the alien it hits is killed. The aliens are classed as Drones, Emissaries, Hornets and Commanders, with those higher up the screen scoring more points when destroyed. At set intervals an enemy will move down the screen towards you, escorting a bomber, which is a moment of high danger. Clear a wave and another is generated.

Toy Story – Sega Mega Drive

This game is based on the movie “Toy Story”. It sets you as the character of Woody as you jump, swing, and drive to the end of each level. Each level contains familiar scenes from the movie. The gameplay consists of the platform\sidescrolling kind. You use Woody’s pullstring to defeat enemies like sharks, Mr. Potatohead, and Ham.

Dynamite Headdy – Sega Mega Drive

Dynamite Headdy is a platformer… with a difference. You control a little character whose main attack comes from his disembodied head. Yes, years before Rayman appeared, we already had a hero who used detachable appendages to attack his enemies.
Rather than the traditional power-ups, Dynamite Headdy enables you to swap your head for different kinds – such as heads that heal you or heads that stick on to walls. You use your head in order to climb up on platforms as well, as you can grab hold of things with it, and on certain stages of the Mega Drive/Genesis version it is used to turn the game into a side-scrolling shooter, as you gain a propeller, jet, or bird head. Basically, Dynamite Headdy is just a traditional platformer at heart.

Vectorman – Sega Mega Drive

VectorMan is a side-scrolling shooter with multidirectional aiming. Before the time runs out, the player must traverse a level from left to right and find the exit, possibly guarded by a boss, but not necessarily. While the levels are generally linear, they may have several platforms awaiting exploration, including hard-to-reach areas hiding power-ups. Three specific levels are unconventional because the perspective changes to a top-down view, and the player must defeat the boss while transformed into a train, a cricket or a dancing fool. By killing enemies or destroying television receivers, VectorMan can find power-ups and may reveal morph icons or powerful weapons that replace VectorMan’s standard ball gun for a limited time, such as the rapid fire or the bolo gun (shoots a big energy ball that goes through multiple orbots). The morph icons transform the player character into a new shape, for example a drill (breaks through floors), a jet (flies), a fish (swims faster), and so on.
The game has three levels of difficulty, and it keeps track of the score the player has accumulated by gathering photons and destroying orbots. Depending on the difficulty, every time a set number of points is reached an extra life is awarded.

Ring ∞ is a spin-off of the cult horror film Ring. In the game you’ll have the unfortunate experience of running across a VHS tape the contents of which will mysteriously kill the viewer seven days after viewing. The tape has been making the rounds at a local high school and students are starting to get used to seeing the petrified faces of their lifeless peers staring blankly up at them from all manner of unlikely places.
After you find watch the video you decide not to be like the rest of those putzes that went down without a fight. You’re going to find out the secret of the video and cheat death. With the help of your classmates and your clandestine crush you might just make it out of this viewing alive. Should you fail, however, you will most certainly fall prey to the videos ghastly creator…
Ring ∞ is a text based ‘choose your own adventure’ game. You’ll be presented with text to read and occasionally get a chance to make a decision. Occasionally you’ll have to make a decision very quickly, e.g. you’ve just thrown a stone at someones window but accidental broken it, you’ll be given your list of action and timed to pick one.
