Onslaught brings together furiously fast battling action binding it up with a strategic map. It's a hard game with some nice visuals and sounds! Onslaught was released only for the Commodore Amiga, Atari ST, DOS and Sega Mega Drive / Genesis systems.

OnslaughtSTORY / GAMEPLAY
In the Land of Gangore, a place of six separate kingdoms, you're a warrior with the strength of a whole army and an insatiable will for glory. The land is too hostile though and every kingdom is under different commands, each with its own army trying to defeat and take over the surroundings. You start your quest by selecting one of the neighboring kingdoms to battle with. Each kingdom is ruled by a different individual that bears his own special statistics. Your opponents also have a Wizard Lord rating to let you know how hard it will be to defeat each ruler in mind duels! Minions range from robbers to undead creatures, attacking in hordes! You must reach (alive that is) the very left end of each stage where your enemy's banner is held. During your battles, Magical relics, weapons and scrolls can be collected from fallen enemies and apart from the evil armies there are also other hazardss scattered around, like mines(!) As said, a mind duel will also have to be fought twice during the game. Fortunately the game offers a save game feature otherwise this would be an almost impossible game to play! The gameplay does not differ from other action platform games of its time and the playing area is extremely clattered, making it difficult to see exactly what's going on around you. But still, the game worth a try, especially for people that love action platform games.

GRAPHICS / SOUND
The graphics on the Atari ST are of high standards with well defined sprites and colorful backdrops using up to 40 colors on-screen. But the backdrops are too colorful and the playing area is much occupied at times, making gameplay frustrating! There are several visual effects around (like some big explosions) and the sprites are nicely drawn and move fast. Overall, Onslaught is a visually impressive game for the ST library! As for the sound, Onslaught has a well composed introductory tune, while there are a few atmospheric in-game tunes combined with simultaneous sampled sound effects. But unfortunately the game's beautiful in-game music is overlapped by its sound effects(!)
