Baldy - Amiga

Baldy was a simple and basic platform game written in 1992 mainly to alleviate the boredom of my mammoth graphic adventure game I was trying to finish. The main character, Baldy, is based on myself (or a friend - I can never remember as we were both bald!), and has to hop around blocks trying to collect Amiga discs.

Each level layout is the same but with different deadly blocks and each level also introduces a new enemy type, increasing in number as each level is complete.

The game received mediocre reviews but did manage to make it onto the cover disc of Amiga Action and One Amiga magazines. It was written using AMOS and its compiler, and in my mind, once you get the hang of the controls, is a nice little game.

It was originally sent to 17bit Software, but as it spread around other PD Libraries got hold of it.

The game on this blog can be used with an Amiga emulator (probably best stick to a standard A500 config with 1mb ram) or if you have the right tools, can be written to a real disc.
