Killerwatt by Alligata is a typically odd game by
Tony Crowther. You control a weird looking spacecraft
around a side-scrolling level full of weird creatures
and obstacles. The aim is to shoot all the light bulbs
and reach the end of the level. It's not much of a
challenge, but it plays well and has all the hallmarks
of a Crowther production. It's a game I remember playing
as a kid, but not really understanding what to do. Once
you work it out, it's very easy to beat. It's not a game
that I'd go back to, but it's worth a quick blast at
"The end in sight..."
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
I loaded it, played it, beat it, saved the end and then
turned it off.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
At the end of the level is a switch you must fire at.
You can only do so if you have shot all of the light
bulbs. Once you hit it, the spaceship floats down, a
long tunnel appears and the spaceship zooms along it
back to the beginning of the level. A 5000 point bonus
message appears on the screen and your score is
increased. Your ship returns to the start position and
you get to play the game over.
