Mad Professor Mariarti is probably one of the best platform games ever made for the 16bit home computers. It was originally released in 1991 by Krisalis Software for the Acorn Archimedes and later the same year ported to the Commodore Amiga and the Atari ST.
 
Review
Mad Professor MariartiSTORY / GAMEPLAY
You are Mad Professor Mariarti, a cool looking scientist who must shut down his 5 different laboratories after some kind of mutation outbreak. Your best bet is to solve strange puzzles and use tools to destroy any mutated equipment and save the world from the mutated danger. Mad Professor Mariarti is a great platform game split over five different levels of fun and you have to complete the first four to gain access to the final stage. Each stage has its own environment like the botanical, space, chemical, computer science and the mystery laboratory and also hides its own individual hazards and dangers. Remember that, everything that flashes or sparks will either kill you instantly or seriously sap your energy and if you fail, you'll end up in a loony bin. Not quite enough blood for some action fans, but it still remains a worthwhile little game. By running, jumping and ducking, you move the Professor across platforms, conveyor belts and ladders. Note that Mad Professor Mariarti is one of the earliest platform games to ever hit the Archimedes home computers.

GRAPHICS / SOUND
The Acorn Archimedes original version features colorful graphics and smooth sprites animations while the game's sound is a real joy with its great in-game tunes and its funny, sampled sound effects.
