TEST PUBLISHED IN GENERATION 4:
After the resounding success of Populous, everybody expected the new software team Bullfrog. And even if Flood tranche radically on the latter, we must admit that we are not disappointed! This time it is a set of tables in which the player must lead Quiffy, the name of the character, through 42 (yes!) Levels are broken down as follows: 36 levels so-called "normal" and 6 slightly harder.
Until then, Quiffy and his peers were living peacefully in underground caverns, feeding waste left by an ancient civilization. Unfortunately, this territory was invaded by vile creatures, distant cousins Quiffy they declared war. In this fight without thank you, Quiffy is now the only survivor. And as if that were not enough, now the elements liguent against Quiffy, spilling huge amounts of water in these caves. This latest misadventure require Quiffy to leave its territory and back to the surface.
Of course, like all games tables, Flood has many pitfalls with levels increasingly difficult. Do not think as far as traditional software. Indeed, from the first part, we feel the label Bullfrog. Flood is an incredible wealth, full of ideas and especially a copy playability.
At the beginning of each level, you start without any defence, it is firstly to find a weapon, which is virtually différenter each time (in the first four levels in any case). For example, at the first level, Quiffy pick up grenades, in the second sticks of dynamite in the third a boomerang, a flame-throwers in the fourth ... Attention, all these weapons are used not only in the same way. Indeed, if the launch boomerang poses no risk to Quiffy, it is otherwise in grenades or dynamite. In recent exploding over an area quite extensive, it is to avoid the shock wave.
In its rebound in the open air, remember that Quiffy needed food and before moving to the next level through a teleporter, you need to collect all these bins on the screen. Besides a meter tells you the number of bins remaining to be collected. Another difficulty, some parts of level are not directly accessible. Again, teleporters are present and you can reach these areas. But that's not all, the game contains many other surprises.
For example, the fifth level you must bring inflatable balloons and trigger the same time a battery of missiles, but it is a necessary evil. Once your meter to zero, do not hesitate to plunge into the void to find the exit, without this invisible ploy. The balloons let you float in the air. Know that in each table, you can obtain a password. To do so simply pick up the question marks! And if you do not find it, try to switch some levers, perhaps appear?
Regarding the enemies, they all have specific characteristics, requiring a long learning (or excessive caution) to find their weak points and use them against them. But the toughest is undoubtedly the ghost, appearing after a few seconds of the game and refaisant at any point your remarkable courses. As it goes faster, he would soon catch up with you.
Finally, the last event: water. indeed, except in certain levels, the water will rise gradually, forcing Quiffy to quickly, very quickly (in case of a prolonged apnea, he will see his life fall quickly). To avoid all these pitfalls, the authors have provided Quiffy a fairly interesting feature: it has the opportunity to move on any side of the decor (the ceiling or on walls for example) unless it is composed of water or fire. this option opens up wide horizons for Quiffy, you can use them!
In terms of achievement, Flood is superb! sompteux of graphics (even if sprites are small), good leadership and excellent sound effects come to bear on Thursday A software exciting to have absolutely!
