- Trap door, the -

Many of the games I remember most were ones that I played on my C64 which was the version computer I ever owned. Trap door is among them as at the time I played it I was quite baffled about what to do even though I tried dozens of times. The aim of the game is actually to solve puzzles about how to get your master what he wants. You are a berk, a servant of the master, and whenever he want something you have to get it for him before he gets mad and destroys you.

The berk you control is a strangish blue character and you can walk around the master's lair until you are commanded to get something for him. It's up to you to figure out how to get it but the trapdoor at the start plays an important part because if you open it something will come out that can help you but if it doesn't you'll have to get rid of it before you can get something else out the trapdoor. Requests are usually for food and you might find yourself trying to collect a can of worms or a fried egg. Getting a can of worms is fairly easy as you only need to collect the worm that come out of the trapdoor but make sure the froggy nearby doesn't eat them. Getting a fried egg is more difficult as you have to first get an egg from a bird that flies and catch it so you can fry it. Once you get what the master wants you can use an elevator to get it to him and he will be satisfied for a short while.

Trap door is a fairly unique puzzle game and some of the puzzles can be quite difficult to figure out. You can also choose from two difficulty levels but this only affects the time you are given to complete a task and not the puzzles themselves. The graphics aren't anything special with most of the screens being green on black backgrounds and the sound is practically nonexsistent but this doesn't distract from the puzzles too much. If your looking for a different kind of puzzle game then give this game a go.

Overal rating: 7/10

This game was released for one system here are some notes:
C64 Released in 1986.
Game has been tested but not completed with CCS64 v2.0 win.
The character doesn't respond quickly to commands so it feels a bit sluggish but you'll adjust fairly easily.
