Apart from slight colour and sound differences, Amiga Plotting is exactly the same as its ST counterpart, and just as much fun. Grab it at the first opportunity.
Amiga Joker (Nov, 1990)
Wenn das Game auch schwierig zu beschreiben ist, spielen tut es sich einfach hervorragend! Technisch stimmt ebenfalls alles: Ordentliche Grafik, flotter Sound, eine optimal gelöste Steuerung, Zwei-Spieler Option und ein Level-Editor – also alles, was des Tüftlers Herz begehrt. Plotting zählt somit ganz klar zu den besonders gefährlichen Süchtigmachern!
The One (Aug, 1990)
The two-player option and the construction kit certainly add to the lastability - once you run out of screens simply design a few extra ones yourself. Admittedly, with just four types of brick and comparatively limited differences in screen design, Plotting doesn't quite match the flexibility of a Tetris, but it's certainly the next best thing: a cracking good brain-game.
CU Amiga (Sep, 1990)
Plotting is simply brilliant. The addition of a Plot construction kit means that it will give timeless appeal, as you can put together your own levels with differing brick formations and pipes which you can bounce tiles off from the side or shoot through the middle from above. Pipes coupled with the various designs of roofs means that there are some points that cannot be reached so it becomes important on later levels to think ahead and calculate your moves.
Amiga Format (Oct, 1990)
Despite the rather daft title and overly cute appearance, Plotting is actually an intriguing and compulsive little puzzle game. The concept is simple enough to get into, but you still have to keep your eyes open and your mind on every move to complete the levels successfully. Getting complacent on even the easier levels is a sure way to quick defeat! These days it is difficult to come up with new computer puzzle ideas, but Plotting is certainly original and highly playable to boot!
Zzap! (Oct, 1990)
My first reaction to Plotting was 'Huh?', but when I'd got the gist I realised what a simple and readily playable puzzle game it is. Unfortunately, unless you tread very carefully and push your luck with the time limit, you often can't see why it's game over until it's too late; tile, step and pipe arrangements can be highly deceptive. It's for this reason that the construction kit isn't very useful. Unless you try to work it out it's easy to create levels that are impossible to complete.
Amiga Power (May, 1991)
A charming game, but eventually dull.
Power Play (Dec, 1990)
Unsere Spielfigur, offensichtlich ein naher Verwandter von Tiki aus Neuseeland, hat eine ganze Menge zu tun, bis er alle Klötzchen abgebaut hat. Auch wenn Plotting nur wenige Spielelemente bietet, so können diese überzeugen. Ein kleines, überschaubares Spielfeld und vier unterschiedliche Steinsymbole lassen genug Freiraum für eigene Kreativität und Knobelkunst. Die Spielidee ist gut durchdacht und nicht einfach nur dahin geschludert, um im momentanen Denkspiel-Boom abzusahnen. Besonders viel Spaß verspricht der Zwei-Spieler-Modus. Hier wird der Ehrgeiz richtig schön angestachelt.
Auf dem Denkspielsektor ist Plotting mit Sicherheit eine wohltuende Neuerscheinung, die selbst dem legendären Tetris Konkurrenz macht. Zu diesem Programm kann man Ocean eigentlich nur gratulieren und jedem anraten, es sich mindest einmal anzuschauen. lt‘s magic!
