Game Review

The Plague is an action sci-fi shooter developed by Critical Design and published by Innerprise Software in 1990 for the Amiga.

The game is set in a future that looks pretty bleak. Monsters or aliens are running amok and it’s up to you to stop it. The main character looks like he could be related to Conan, all rippling muscles, and minimal clothing. He’s got a big gun and he’s not afraid to use it. He can run, jump, shoot, and climb ropes. He starts out with a machine gun, but additional weapons can be collected via power-ups. You also have access to a small number of level clearing bombs for emergencies. Enemies walk, crawl, fly, and scuttle, and can either be killed or avoided. Thankfully, muscles is not a one-hit kill, but you should probably keep an eye on the health bar.

The Plague was not wildly popular with critics, but it’s a run-and-gun and that’s always entertaining. At least to me. Plus, if you break the high score you can paint the background for level 3. What do you think? You may place your opinion on the matter below.
