- Sacred armor of Antiriad, the -

It's a nice day when Tal and his friends are riding their horses when suddenly out of the air come strange flying devices. They start hurling bolts of light at the people and killing them! After going into hiding Tal speaks with the elders and they have a plan. Somewhere near is the sacred antiriad armor and it has the power to stop the invaders. Being the bravest and strongest warrior Tal is selected to find the armor and stop the invaders.

The above story is told through a comic that was packaged with the game, something not uncommon in those days because of the limitations of the hardware (we're talking almost 20 years ago so). You start the game at the beginning of your search for the armor, you have no clothes and are armed only with throwing stones. Your path is blocked by countless nasty invaders most of which you can dispatch with a few well placed stones. First it's a matter of finding the armor and activating it, unfortunately after you try and move it it says that gravity is preventing it from taking off. You quickly realize that the armor is no longer complete and you have to find the missing parts as well. After finding the armor's boots and some energy you are able to fly using the armor, then is a matter of finding weapons with which to defend yourself and finally completing the armor and destroying the base of the invaders.

Antiriad can be an very difficult game because you have to do some precise positioning and only get 5 lives. Each time you are hit you loose energy and after 5 hits you loose a life, unfortunately there is no energy indicator when you are not in the armor. Using the armor makes life a bit easier but later inside the enemy base things become much more difficult again. I was never able to complete it when I first owned this game but now I was finally able to finish it thanks to the wonder of emulation. This game is seriously challenging so if you enjoy that type of thing I can recommend it despite it being a bit standard action game.


Overal rating: 7/10

This game was released three different systems here are some notes:
Amstrad CPC Released in 1986.
The game includes two trainers. The graphics are better than the others especially the intro screen but it suffers from slowdown a lot.
C64 Released in 1986.
Game has been tested and completed with CCS64 V2.0 win.
The game includes a trainer but it completely takes the challenge out of the game.
ZX Spectrum Released in 1986.
When you walk past an object your character takes on the color of that object, it's a bit lame but gameplay is still there.
