- Eon -

EON is a sidescrolling shoot'em up in which you have to shoot countless enemies to advance a level and gather powerups to help to do that, so far nothing out of the ordinary you'd say. The first thing you'll notice is that you have control over which direction you are flying because unlike other games of this type you don't fly one way but you can fly right or left whichever you want. The other thing of interest is that the game was released in 1993 which was at the very end of the commercial life of the C64.

The game starts much like any other shooter and you start with a simple weapon which you have to use to take out enemies coming at you in patterns. Occasionally they drop items which you can use to powerup which obviously makes your life much easier. The two-direction flying isn't a gimmick actually but it is a part of the game as you can't complete the level just by flying towards one side. There are a number of security stations scattered across the levels which you have to destroy and only when you do that will the exit be available to you. Visually the game is at the limits of what the C64 is capeable of with silky smooth scrolling and lots of sprites filling the screen at regular intervals. Each level also has it's soundtrack and altough the sound effects might get in the way of you really hearing them they are quite good also.

EON is a shooter that looks to be more of a hobby project than a commercial venture as in 1993 very few people still used the C64 other than enthusiasts. It shows however and the quality of the game is very high. The story at the beginning is a bit long and not really needed for a game of this type but it all serves only to get into action. Shoot'em ups were never really my favorite genre but I know when a game is worth the effort and this game definately qualifies. You might not get the presentation that games on more powerfull systems have but it's a great example of what can be done on a machine with limited resources.

Overal rating: 7.5/10

This game was released for one system here are some notes:
C64 Released in 1987.
You can turn your ship in another direction by holding the fire button and pushing the joystick in that direction however during battle you might accidentally do this.
I had some problems with Beta 1.7 version of CCS64 but it seems to work ok with older ones.
