Benefactor is an Amiga original game created by Swedish studio Digital Illusions and published by Psygnosis for the Amiga and Amiga CD32 in 1994.
Digital Illusions was famous for the pinball series ( Pinball Dreams/Fantasies), but with Benefactor, they created something completely different and totally innovative. Many defined this game as a mix between Lemmings and Prince of Persia, but it's much more than this. At first sight, you will notice a classic platformer screen, but at minimum zoom level.
Your hero is, in fact, tiny, but you will notice that he's very well animated. He's capable of running, jumping, double-jumping, climbing, use ladders, and other objects. This will be useful to reach the platforms and collect the keys required to open the doors and free your small friends. The merry men that you will release, won't escape the level, but they will stay to help. For example, if you give them axes or cogs, they can fix ladders and other mechanisms required to reach other platforms. You can also take in your arms and launch them to the platforms you cannot reach. Sometimes you will have to launch them so that they can escape from the end-of-level door. Of course, there are also enemies, like slugs, rock men, dragon worms, and more, so pay attention!
