Summary

A combination of Berzerk and Adventure.

The Good

Shamus is an exact combination of Adventure (the Atari 2600 game where you roam from room to room looking for items and avoiding the dragon) and Berzerk (the arcade maze game where you shoot robots and avoid Evil Otto). If you like those two games, you'll like Shamus.

A diverse array of special items can also be picked up for points or extra men.

The Bad

If you don't like Adventure and/or Berzerk, then you won't like Shamus. It's fun for ten or twenty minutes, but gets frustrating at times, boring at others.

The Bottom Line

Like Adventure? Like Berzerk? Then you'll love Shamus.
