Code Hunter is an original puzzle game by Firebird.
It's another game that I think was awarded a very
generous score of 83% by ZZAP!64 magazine. There are
sixteen levels to beat, which get more difficult as you
progress. The aim is to dismantle an alien ship's battle
defences by infiltrating it's network with your code
hunter intruder droid. Each screen is set up as a grid
which you have to move around and destroy the enemy
droids. This is done by dropping a pod in their path and
then collecting the pod once the enemy is caught inside
it and has stopped moving. Different points of the grid
cause your droid to do different things such as
teleport, lose or gain energy, move in a certain
direction or explode - so you need to take note of what
signs are displayed underneath each slot on the grid.
graphics are good, the game plays smoothly and it's an
original concept. It's quite a challenge to beat, but
not impossible so it's worth checking out.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
The ending is just a page of text, written in the style
of a telegram - which seems a bit odd being as it is set
in the future. The message tells us that the codes have
been transferred to the main CPU, the alien fleet has
been located and fighters have been sent to destroy it.
The mission is complete and the droid has been ordered
to return back to base.
