> ANT ATTACK by Quicksilva

• Completed & Reviewed by Neil Collins

Ant Attack is a classic "3D game" by Quiksilva. I used to love playing this game as a kid. The playing area consists of some unique and beautiful 3D towers and buildings. My friend had a great poster of this, which I think came free with a magazine. The aim of the game is to make ten trips into the ant infested area and rescue the person that is trapped. You can play the part of a boy or a girl, with the trapped person being the opposite sex to that of which you choose as the hero. You can fire at the ants and jump on their backs to paralyze them, with their stationary bodies coming in handy as a stepping stone to reach higher ledges. It's great fun to play and has an eerie atmosphere to it. I was addicted to this game on the Spectrum, which I completed. I was eager to find out how the C64 version ended. I have to say that this is one game that I prefer on the Spectrum. The C64 version seems to be lacking something. Either way it's a classic game. Sandy White is a legend !


The final scores George Doors.

The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I used an infinite lives cheat.

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once you have returned safely to the city outskirts for the tenth time you get the usual "CONGRATULATIONS" message. The screen then strobes various colours and a small message appears at the bottom of the screen reading 'AT LAST YOUR MISSION IS OVER!' The game is then complete.

COMMENTS: Very, very poor. Shocking...

FINAL SAY: Gutted about this one. The game and the ending are better on the Spectrum. Shhhhh... don't tell anyone. Let's forget about it and move swiftly on.

G.E. RATING: 1 / 10
