Game Review

Troddlers is a puzzle game developed by ATOD Design and published initially for the Amiga in 1992. It was also ported to MS-DOS and SNES.

In this cute and colorful game, your task is to create a path for all the small creatures so that they can exit the level. You create the way by placing blocks on the screen, with a mechanic similar to one of the popular 8-bit title Solomon's Key.

Considering that Troddlers was released one year after Lemmings and that it features small creatures, it's normal that the ATOD's puzzler was often considered a kind of clone of - or at least a game inspired to - Lemmings. But the reality is there are many differences between the 2 games. First, the block mechanics, but also because the levels occupy just 1 screen, without scrolling. It's also controlled with joysticks, not with a mouse, making Troddlers much more "arcade".

But most importantly, the game modes: in addition to the single-player levels, you can also play Troddlers with a friend, choosing between the 50 cooperative levels (in the Team mode) or the 25 competitive levels (in the War mode). In total, 175 different levels of unique puzzles, with a lot of power-ups, traps, and hazards.

Add to this, the perfect graphics created by Dennis Gustafsson and the music composed by legendary Allister Brimble.

It should not surprise that Troddlers got a 91% from Amiga Action, 89% from Amiga Power and many other positive reviews. Try it, and you will see it.
