Security Alert by First Star is an action / puzzle
game where you have to break into various buildings,
steal a specific item and escape. Each level contains
traps, cameras, robots, lasers and many other items that
will make your task quite tricky. You need to work out
the best route around each complex and find the hidden
items that will help you to disarm the many devices that
have been installed to prevent the theft of the valuable
items contained in each level. The graphics are very
good, with colourful sprites, icons and backgrounds,
which can be examined from multiple viewpoints. Being a
fan of 'They stole a million' - which is another game
based on a similar theme - I'm surprised that I hadn't
stumbled across this game before. Although there aren't
many levels to beat, this game is quite tough. I'd
definitely recommend this to those who like a slow paced
gamed that needs careful planning and thought. Or to
those who just like stealing things...
Our hero final
escapes from the building...
...where his bike is
waiting for him.
He makes a camp rush
for his wheels...
himself into the air...
...to land straight
on his bike.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
I poked the code to stop the time. I also saved my game
many times as I progressed through each level.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
Once you exit from the final level, the same cut-scene
that is shown after all the other levels is displayed.
The scene shows the thief running from the building and
jumping onto a motorbike which is parked outside. He
then rides towards a ramp at the side of the screen and
jumps across the river and escapes.
Cool. Not only is he a master thief, he's a stuntman
