Hey, I have for years been trying to get my head around one of the first C64 games I ever played and I have never found it again or any references to it.
It was a space game where you had to navigate different rooms to get to "the core" or such. You got a map with the game (a physical map that is) but it was kinda random which room you got and like I said you had to navigate through different types of rooms like moving walls, crushers etc.
I recall playing it on cartridge but that's a definite maybe.
Any leads? My memory is that it was called "Liberator" or such but no dice on finding it. There is another game called Liberator but that is not it.
Any help, greatly appreciated. This was an early game.
I suppose it's too much to hope that you're thinking of Countdown to Shutdown/Meltdown, which can randomize item/enemy (or player?) placement if requested...
Could you please answer a few questions? 1. What country did you purchase/play this in? 2. What perspective was the game - first-person, isometric, top-down? 3. What do you mean by "kinda random which room you got"? Did the game start you in a random room, or did the map only cover part of the game?
1. Sweden 2. It was really Really old school C64 as I recall it and it probably top down. Each room was a puzzle you had to navigate, avoid stuff etc. 3. You had some form of map in paper with it but some rooms were randomized, a bit like rooms in Impossible Mission, you don't know what you get until you go there.
I honestly can't really remember the exact relation between the map and the game layout.
This all was probably about 25 years ago. Had andrew Spencers football on Cartridge and got Frogger/Frog run not to far after, and Castle of terror.
I'm taking a shot in the dark, but could the game be Libra?
It's got multiple rooms where you have to avoid things, and looks like it's space-themed, but I don't know about the story. And, of course, it's not top-down.
thanks but no thats not it,
The game mechanics in the rooms are more moving and such. you have to time when going through them etc.
I have searched high and low over the years but never found anything supporting it even ever existed.
