Super Adventures at Christmas - Game 2:
Die Hard: Nakatomi Plaza there was another attempt to bring the action of the original Die Hard movie to home computers. And it seems they couldn't get the right to use Bruce Willis's likeness for this one either.
Die Hard on the PC Engine they actually started me off in a forest. And after that there was the swamp level...
Okay the plot seems to be the same as the movie. Terrorists have broken into the Nakatomi Plaza skyscraper during the Christmas party and have taken everyone inside hostage. Everyone except tough wisecracking everyman protagonist Detective John McClane.
Now I just need to figure out how to make him move.
I was surprised to see the background actually move as I walk around. It doesn't look it, but this is actually full 3D polygon graphics. Well except for McClane obviously.
Shit... I think I just saw someone walking in the background over there. He was around where the plant pot is I'm sure of it. I probably shouldn't be strolling down hallways like this unarmed.
Though at least I have shoes on, which puts me one step ahead of movie McClane, who had to spend the whole movie barefoot. Not sure about that colour though.
Oh right, I've got a pistol. I just need to figure out how to fire it.
I just need to move the gun a little bit more to the right... just a fraction more. Damn that's too much, now I just need to pull it back a slightly to the left...
It's his own fault really, he had 15 seconds to shoot me or run away and instead he just stared at me. Oh crap, you don't think he could have been a hostage do you?
I leave the corpse lying where he fell, and continue off down the maze of corridors.
And I have two more doors to choose from. I'll just keep going forward.
Uh... I'm just going to go back outside
Though I don't know what I'm going to do about him. I'll never be able to shoot him when he's this close and he's blocking the way through. Or maybe not...
I'll go with 'restart'. I'm not done with this game just yet.
Uh... fuck it. I'm just gonna make a run for it. Even if I can't kill the enemies I can still find the elevator to the next floor.
This door looks different to the others, so I'm hoping it's my way out. There's a red box above the door and I've got a red spinning rectangle on my hud, I wonder if the two things are connected.
1 MINUTE AND 40 SECONDS LATER.
Well this plant pot doesn't seem to have a keycard in it. I'll keep searching.
Okay I've been playing for 10 minutes, I've circled this entire floor at least twice, and I'm not getting anywhere. So I give up.
Sorry, but that's as much of the game as I'm able to show you.
