Game Review

Gods is a fantasy platform game developed by The Bitmap Brothers and published by Renegade Software in 1991 for the Amiga, Atari ST, and DOS.

The Gods have put out an open call to any hero who can defeat the four guardians and retake their city. You are the hero who answers that call, with a lust for immortality driving you. You embark on your quest to slay enemies and create your legend. The main character uses thrown weapons (fireballs, daggers, axes, etc.) in order to take out enemies. Weapons can be found in-game or purchased from a peddler if you’ve got the gold. An interesting gameplay element of Gods is that the enemy AI adjusts to your play style. This means that the enemies can figure out how to avoid your attacks, making you have to switch it up as you go. The game also helps you out a little if you suck by making powerups and bonuses more frequent. Even if you’re good you can still locate bonus rooms to get a little boost. Aside from enemy slaying, you will also engage in some puzzle solving and exploration.

Gods had a very positive reception when it was released and won several awards. It was praised for its graphics and the innovative AI. Gods is a good combination of action and puzzling and is a must play for fans of the genre.
