Following on from our short article final month revealing the ‘9.99 Range’ of Cartridge Games from The Future Was eight-Bit (TFW8b), VITNO has received their physical copy of a single of the titles featured in this variety, Ms RodMan.
Created by Mika ‘Misfit’ Keränen, Ms RodMan is the Commodore 64 sequel to final year’s multi-format release of RodMan,
RodMan is a reimaging of the classic Pac-Man. Not only do you go about maze like screens, collecting round tablets though avoiding enemy characters but you can also gather diamond shaped bombs that can be made use of to blow up and eradicate the undesirable guys, in the exact same way as you do in Bomberman. But beware, the bombs can also kill RodMan so you far better make certain he is out of variety prior to they detonate.
If you enjoyed RodMan final year or this style of arcade gaming then you are certain to come across Ms RodMan rather entertaining and addictive. The game is far more a significantly less an updated version of the original. The only adjustments created to the game are some minor alterations to the level layouts and graphics, though the sound effects (to my ears) appear to have a tiny bit far more range and fidelity to them.
The physical cartridge itself is somewhat intriguing. Coming with an outer sleeve, the cart is 3-quarters the size of your normal C64 cartridge. it basically appears rather cute and is a fantastic variation for enthusiasts who avidly gather physical editions of existing C64 games.
I identified RodMan to be rather entertaining to play final year and this sequel is no distinct. Properly worth the consideration if you enjoyed the original release. The game is offered in a physical cart format from The Future Was eight Bit.
