Legend of the Amazon Women by Silvertime is another game I decided to have a crack at after spotting it on the WANTED LIST on the website...

I vaguely remember playing this game in the past, but due to it being very difficult and very boring it's not something that I would have played a lot of times. The plot is a bit silly, but quite original. You play the part of Lady Penelope, who has woken to find herself lost in the Amazon jungle after her plane has crashed. Her young daughter has gone missing, but where is she? Why she's been kidnapped by the legendary tribe of Amazon Women! Pretty obvious really. So with club in hand you have to fight your way past the Amazon women to get to your daughter. The graphics and animation are very similar to Tir-na-nog and Dun-Darach, although it's a bit more colourful. Unfortunately the game play  is very repetitive, too linear and extremely boring. The other major flaws are the speed (it's incredibly slow) and the difficulty level (it's way too hard).

I'd avoid this game, as there are far better fighting games available on the C64.

"Take your marks..."

"...get set..."


The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I poked about in the code and managed to stop the timer and my energy level from decreasing.

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: If you managed to beat all the Amazon women to death and work your way to the end of the scrolling landscape, you get to see a small crib which appears as part of the background graphics. Once you approach it, Penelope reaches down to collect her child and the game is beaten. A message appears at the top of the screen which reads "CONGRATULATIONS. YOU MADE IT THROUGH THE JUNGLE." The game then restarts.


  • Neil: It's an ending that you probably wouldn't see without cheating. Fortunately you wouldn't be missing out on much. It's only worth a look if you really liked this game but never got very far in it. 2/10.
  • Vinny: A few months ago I decided to take this game on and see if I could obtain the game ending. The only way I was going to complete this game was with a cheat, and so I added one in and proceeded to play through the game. Unfortunately I didn't get to the end because I got bored stiff! The game is seriously repetitive and mundane, and it didn't take too long until I gave in. Fortunately, Neil was able to get passed the boredom and play through...

    As for the ending, no surprises there. Boring. 2/10.
  • Andy Vaisey: Wow! How boring can one game be? A jerky, garish background with some, admittedly, half decent sprites, repeats endlessly along with a terrible tune. And the ending hardly makes boring yourself to death, by playing through, worth while...
  • Andrew Fisher: All the fuss over the cover artwork and the adverts, when they should have been raging against the terrible game play. It's a long, tedious road to a brief and disappointing ending.
  • Brendan Phoenix: Awful game, attempted it myself, a proper snooze-fest. No redeeming features, right up to the lacklustre ending.
  • Gaz Spence: One of the all-time stinkers that should never have seen the light of day - boring unplayable rubbish. I'm sort of pleased that the ending is as poor as it is - the game deserves no better.

FINAL SAY: Similar to how the game ended on other computer formats.

G.E. RATING: 2 / 10
