Game Review

Assassin is a sci fi action platform game developed by Psionic Systems and published by Team17 Software in 1992 for Amiga. It was followed 2 years later by Assassin: Special Edition, with quite a few changes. It draws inspiration from Turrican and Strider and has similar gameplay.

As the name would suggest you are an assassin sent on a mission to do what you do. After being dropped off by the chopper, you have to make your way through henchmen, robots and other dangers. With the ability to run, jump, and kung fu grip to walls and ceilings to climb (and flip), you’re pretty agile. Equipped with laser gun (that was a killer boomerang in the first version), travel deep into your enemy’s compound, disable his defenses, and snuff him out!

Assassin was pretty highly rated when it was released. Garnering praise for its sound and graphics. Lauded as very fun and playable, I find that I have to agree with them on that. It’s a fun action platformer and I like to flip around just for S & G. Plus, the game features music and sound effects by Allister Brimble (Alien Breed, Superfrog, Agony, Goal! and many more).
