Much like the Zool series, one of the best arcade platforms on Amiga OCS/AGA, Commodore 64 and DOS!
You play a Troll roaming the levels in the hope of rescuing as many baby trolls as possible - each level gives you a set minimum babies to retrieve before you can leave via the Pigstop. Jump above the enemies to avoid contacting in order to survive. As the game progress, you'll find a... Yo-Yo which can be used not only to kill enemies but also to smash blocks away and open up paths. Note that initially the only way to survive is to avoid enemy contact by jumping above them! The gameplay and the overall game design remind us the beloved Zool (and Zool 2). Troll is also a very addictive platform game, full of action and fun to play.
The game runs in VGA mode and utilizes the full potential of the available 256 color-palette. The graphics are nice, colorful and funny but sometimes frame rates suffers a lot here compared to its other two counterparts (Amiga 500, Amiga 1200) due to their more capable custom graphics chips. Sound is also good featuring several nice in-game tunes and some funny sound effects but both inferior to the Amiga’s version as expected!
