Psi-Droid is an action/platform game by Zeppelin
that has you controlling a strange looking droid that
can bounce and move sideways. The aim of the game is to
recover parts of a bomb that are scattered throughout
the spaceship. You also need to collect a set amount of
podules to proceed to the next level. You can fire your
lasers to destroy enemy robots, and use teleporters to
navigate your way through the ship's decks.
game looks fairly good and plays smoothly but it's not
very exciting. Most screens look too similar, which
leads to confusion and it gets really boring searching
for bomb pieces. It's also fairly annoying when you have
to bounce upwards on narrow ledges after having fallen
from the top. It may appeal to the more patient gamer
who prefers stealth to fast action. It's not bad, it's
just not that great either...
Ah - the alien
What ON EARTH is
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
I played it, collected everything and beat it.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
Once the final podule and bomb piece is collected the
game is beaten and a new screen appears. A picture of
the complete bomb is shown with a message below it that
reads "WELL DONE. BOMB PARTS FOUND. EXPLOSIVE FOUND.
ALIEN CRAFT DESTRUCTION TRIGGERED." A picture of an
alien craft in space is then shown while a flashing
effect starts to simulate it's destruction. Suddenly it
vanishes (which I presume means it has exploded), and
the game loops to the main menu.
