Game Review

Mind Walker is one of the first videogames ever created for the Amiga and one of the few titles published by Commodore.

This 3D action/puzzle game was designed by Bill Williams and was published in 1986. Williams, both musician and game designer, was known for some excellent Atari 800 games, such as Alley Cat and Necromancer.

Mind Walker was a pleasant surprise for the lucky owners of the Amiga 1000, the first model of this machine (the Amiga 500 would not arrive until 1987). In fact, in 1986, the choice of titles released for the new Commodore computer was quite poor, and most of them were just conversions. Together with Mind Walker, 1986 saw the release of The Faery Tale Adventure and the most popular Defender of the Crown.

Back to Mind Walker, the concept of this game was really brilliant. You are inside the brain of a mad scientist, and you have to find your sanity back. It features 3D filled polygons graphics and it benefits from a fantastic soundtrack composed by Williams himself.

Another unique feature of this game is that it was fully compatible with the operative system. You could launch it from the Workbench and use other programs at the same time since it was totally multi-tasking friendly.

It's a little gem created by a brilliant and unlucky designer, Bill Williams, who died at the age of 37. We will publish another of his games very soon: Sinbad and the Throne of the Falcon.
