A colorful action adventure game, based in Spanish comics and released on MSX, ZX Spectrum, Amstrad CPC and for the 16bits Amiga, ST and PC (DOS).
 
Review
LornaLorna is a sexy blonde girl found in Spanish comics. As Lorna, you have to battle her way through a swamp, a cave and a forest, to reach a temple.
Once you enter the temple, you must find the six pieces of Lorna's robot and then assemble them. On three of game levels, you are armed with a kind of a riffle in order to survive from various alien species, but be careful because your ammunition is very limited. This makes the game rather difficult, though you may find flying species that will carry ammunition clip or energy. Just jump on them and grab the goodies! Difficulty gets higher as your character is not centered on the scrollable screen, rather than walking close to the end of the gameplay area. This makes it difficult to react when nasties come towards you!
Apart of being a typical side-scrolling arcade adventure in most of the levels, the game offers a level in which you fly on a spaceship, shooting and/or avoiding everything that comes on you. A nice action adventure though, although the gameplay becomes slightly tedious after a few goes.

Well the graphics are nice, and colorful. I liked the background details (i.e. jungle trees, underground lairs etc). The animation is fluid with huge sprites on screen, although the background suffers from flickering. As far as the sound goes, I found it poor (even on the 16bit versions). Although it offers a nice main menu tune, during gameplay the game is almost soundless on the CPC (and ZX, MSX), probably due their limited memory (used for the graphics details probably!).

Hardware information

Amstrad CPC 464/664/6128

Amstrad CPC 464/664/6128CPU: ZiLOG Z80 4MHZ
MEMORY: 64 KB or 128 KB of RAM depending on the model (capable of being expanded to 512k using memory extension boards)
GRAPHICS: Motorola 6845 address generator, Mode 0: 160x200 / 16 colors, Mode 1: 320x200 / 4 colors, Mode 2: 640x200 / 2 colors, A colour palette of 27 colors was supported
SOUND: The CPC used the General Instrument AY-3-8912 sound chip, providing 3 channels Mono Sound (via internal speaker) but capable to offer Stereo Sound provided through a 3.5 mm headphones jack (with pretty impressive outcome!). Also, it is possible to play back digital sound samples at a resolution of approximately 5bit. This technique is very processor-intensive though.
