It's too late, you can't go back. You are going to die soon...

However you knew that everybody who was interested in the Kruwehl family is dead now. All mysteriously killed by poisoning. Now it's your turn to meet this tragic end.

You aren't a good journalist yet, but you wrote an article on Kale Kruwehl, the present owner of the "Sheer Agony Manor". You already regret this article. No! You must be strong. You can't die like that. There must be a solution. And that should be found in the manor ...


Graphics

To tell the truth, graphics are very bad. Maybe it's only a conversion of the Falcon to 16 colors without colouring...


Sound

No music, no sound. It's a pity. This game can't compete with similar games like Maupiti Island where one of the strong points is the sound.


Gameplay

This is a typical menu for this kind of games, nothing extraordinary. You play with a mouse to select the commands.


Conclusion

My comments are tough but still, I appreciate this game, because the story is interesting and it's quite a thrilling game. Unfortunately this game doesn't use the possibilities of the ST by far. But Sheer Agony is still a good game. If you have the opportunity, play the Falcon version in true color.





Score
  • Graphics: 4
  • Sound: 1
  • Gameplay: 8
  • Overall: 7

What an accomplishment this game is. Created with such a small team, the result is really amazing. The game oozes creative passion. While the gameplay is really well balanced, it is a tough cookie, very hard from time to time with its moments of sheer frustration. As of level 3, timing becomes key. You will need to practice and learn the levels to complete this game, there are so many bad guys on screen it sometimes gets a bit hard to take.

Graphically, it's also nice on the eyes with well-defined graphics and animation. You really get the feeling that the developers put some thought and love into the game. Remember what I said about the large levels? Well these are wonderful and are very different to each other, they also scroll fairly smooth in all four directions.

Cybernoid - The Fighting Machine

When you boot up the game you’re presented with a fantastic loading picture of your ship. It's detailed with bold colours and it tells you This is 16-bit, bitch. Then you get the wonderful rendition of the Cybernoid theme that's on all the 8-bit versions. It's not exact but the changes still make it noticeable to anyone who knows it.
