> PLURAL by CP Verlag

• Completed & Reviewed by Neil Collins

Plural is a shoot-em-up by CP Verlag. It was released in 1991, so these guys had probably played an awful lot of C64 shoot-em-ups to know what makes a good one. It seems they have taken this into account and produced a very good one. It's very slick and smooth with neat backdrops and beautiful sprites. You can collect some wicked power-ups to help blast your way through the levels. You can play one or two players, and there's also an autofire option. The enemy attack patterns need to be memorised if you are to progress - and a lot of skill is needed to beat the game.

There's not a lot to fault here as it all looks and plays very well and the difficultly is set just right, so it makes you want to play it over and over again. I recommend you check this one out as it's one of the finer shoot-em-ups on the C64.

Very nice...

The End.

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

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once the final alien is destroyed, the end sequence loads up... It's basically a picture of a man and woman in spacesuits holding hands on the surface of a planet (I know that's not PC, but I'm guessing it's a male and a female). You can see numerous planets and moons in the space above the planet surface and in front of them you can see some buildings where the colonists live. A message appears over the picture which confirms that you have been successful in your mission and saved your people. You feel their gratitude as their faith in you was well placed. Awwww... how touching...


  • Neil: A cracking blast with a neat ending tagged on to it. There are better endings about, but this is pretty good in shoot-em-up terms. 5/10.
  • Vinny: I still need to check this game out because judging by Neil's comments, it sounds like a right corker!

    As for the ending... VERY NICE! I love the picture and the tune is perfect for the ending. 6/10 from me.

FINAL SAY: Quite happy with that. Nice little ending.

G.E. RATING: 5.5 / 10
