Pulse Warrior is a tricky, original puzzle game by
board a space station, which is under attack from
aliens, you are charged with the task of repelling them.
This is done by deflecting a pulse of energy around the
deck, into a lens and then out through the hole in the
deck at the attacking enemies. Once a deck is complete
the level goes grey and you move onto the next. There
are a lot of decks to clear and the difficulty increases
the longer you take. The game is won when all levels are
clear. Playing is easy but winning is quite hard.
I found the first few decks a piece of cake but it then
got a lot harder. I can't remember playing any game like
this so it was refreshing to play something quite
original. It was also a budget release so it must have
been a bargain back in the eighties.
Graphically it is very
good, with neat sprites and a great use of colour to
give the decks a neat 3D effect. It's one of the best
looking and neatest puzzle games I've seen on the C64.
Check this one out.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
I played this game in parts over a long period of time,
and saved my progress at the end of each session.
Eventually all levels were beaten and the game was won.
I also used an infinite lives cheat.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
Once all levels become grey a message appears at the
bottom of the screen which reads 'ALL BAYS DESTROYED.
ENEMY SURRENDER'. (Spot the spelling mistake when
you watch the ending).
