Twinworld: Land Of Vision is a great action platform game set in a fantasy world! It was released for the Commodore 64, Amstrad CPC, Acorn Archimedes, Amiga and Atari ST home computers in the early 90s.
STORY / GAMEPLAY
You control an elf called Ulopa. Ulopa is a prince and the sole survivor of the Cariken royal family. Ulopa has to avenge his father's death and must travel through 23 progressively harder levels to find the pieces of a stolen amulet and confront an evil wizard called Maldur. The gameplay mainly involves jumping on different platforms and shooting magical balls towards enemies, which come in the form of various evil looking, fantasy animals (three in total). Each weapon might run out but it can also be replenished when killing the evil creatures. To complete a level, Ulopa must find a piece of the stolen amulet and go through the main exit door while he must also enter caves and reveal secret doors to find more bonuses. There's an option for when things get desperate: You can press the ESC key when you cannot do anything to proceed and the game will take you some steps back. But this will cost a life as well, so be careful with your moves and actions.
GRAPHICS / SOUND The Acorn Archimedes visuals are nice with colorful levels and smooth sprites animation. Compared to the Amiga counterpart, the Acorn version lacks some detail and this very version is almost identical to the ST (well, except of the Acorn's smooth scrolling)! The sound includes in-game tunes and some sampled sound effects, as well as a nice intro music, equally great as the Amiga original.
