STORY / GAMEPLAY
You are a brave Troll fighting your way through cute-looking and vividly colored environments, trying to rescue as many baby trolls as possible that are kept captives. Each level has a certain number of babies to save before you will be able to go to the next via a portal called PigStop. At the beginning, your only chance to survive is to jump onto each enemy's head and avoid contact in general but as the game progresses you'll find a Yo-Yo that can be used not only as a weapon but also as a tool that will smash blocks and open pathways. The gameplay and the overall level design remind us of Zool (and Zool 2) and Troll is surely a very addictive platform game as it offers great action, candy visuals and so much fun. GRAPHICS / SOUND
With around 100 colors on-screen, the graphics on the AGA version look comparably better to the OCS. The environments are vivid and look funny and the sprites' animation is smooth. Note that the Amiga CD32 version includes a few more detailed levels compared to the classic A1200. The sound is good and features a cool introductory tune along with a variety of in-game music plus a bunch of funny, sampled sound effects!
