Terry's Big Adventure is a platformer created by Gametec and published in 1989 for the Commodore 64, Amiga, and Atari ST.
The game is clearly inspired by Great Giana Sisters, which was, in turn, a sort of clone of Super Mario.
There are 12 levels in totals, with colorful and cute enemies, such as snails and hedgehogs. Terry can use a yo-yo as a weapon, which makes things different from the usual gameplay. However, Terry's Big Adventure doesn't pretend to be anything more than a simple and fun platformer with classic 8-bit graphics. Even on the Amiga, where more colors are used, the 8-bit style is clearly visible but perfectly executed. Add addictive music composed by the legendary Allister Brimble.
