The Bureau Needs You to Start a
After 47 years the war between the two largest corporations
on planet AMOK finally comes to an end. Now the Bureau, a small outfit that
profited heavily from the great war, is desperate to provoke a new one. To do
so, they have hired you to pilot a modified battle walker/sub called the
Slambird. Immersed in a 3-D nightmare you must demolish buildings, blow-up army
bases and sink underwater bunkers...to destroy peace.
Requirements: 486-DX2 (Pentium 100mhz or better processor
recommended), MS DOS 6.0 or Windows 95 required, 2x CD-ROM drive or better, 8MB
of RAM (16 MB recommended for Windows 95), Sound Blaster and 100% compatible
boot, January 1997
"The action proceeds at a good clip, and you can turn it up
even higher by switching to fewer colors and lowering the resolution. Forget
about running Amok off your hard drive, because you must play it
all off the disc. Still, with a lower resolution and 256 colors, running from
the disc doesn't hurt the explosions and it really pumps the funky music, which
auto configs and plays through any Sound Blaster compatible card. Plus, the
animations don't jerk or slow down.
"Despite great visuals, such as the awesome underwater
scenes, complete with sunken mountains (an excellent chance to whack any sharks
that get in your way), there's no time for sight-seeing. Mobile Droids and
various missile banks are looking to blast your head off, so blast them first.
And remember, speed kills, so destroy anything that gets in your way."
