Review
AntiriadSTORY/GAMEPLAY
Two major world powers have been secretly working on Anti-Rad suits, that would render their user invulnerable to conventional and nuclear weaponry. Once one side found out what the other was doing, it was enough to tip the delicate balance so the first nuclear missile was launched. The war raged merely for a moment, but smoke and debris lingered high in the atmosphere and plunged the planet into a nuclear winter that lasted for hundreds of years. Centuries passed, and from the chaos emerged a new race of men, strong and tough. They led a simple and peaceful life, farming, hunting, and telling tales around their fires at night. Stories drew from distant memories of a volcano that loomed over the half buried remains of an ancient city. Suddenly, their lives were darkened by evil invaders, coming from a far off world. Their weapons were sophisticated and they showed no mercy, the people fought bravely, but against such might they stood little chance! All those that remained after the slaughter were put to work mining the planet's reach mineral resources. A male fighter, Tal, stood out as a champion and was chosen as the last hope, the man who would save the race. So Tal has been sent on a quest, to find the last remaining blueprint of The Armour, a Sacred scroll, outlining the magic it can perform. He must search the forests, find the suit and use its power to destroy the central generator of the tyrants.

GRAPHICS/SOUND
The graphics on the 8bit Commodore are great, though they lack some extra colors. The level details are pretty nice followed by an excellent sprite animation. Notice that the frame-rate does not suffer at all when several sprites move around the screen, and this makes this version more playable than its Amstrad CPC and ZX Spectrum coujnterparts.
The sound effects are solid gunshots fulfilling their purpose and the game also includes a cool and one of the best C64 opening tunes.
