However, apart from the unbelievably hackneyed plot and gamestyle drudge, Amok is really quite jolly. The graphics are nice, the sound is nice, and in a 'leave your brain at home' shoot 'em up surely this is all that matters? Maybe so, maybe so. But I'll also add that Amok is bloody, sodding difficult and that passwords are handed out at such a stingy rate you'll find yourself repeating levels you've already done time and time again just to get back to the level you keep getting killed on. You know? And the layouts of the later, larger levels become so confusing - what with teleports and so forth - that you'll be tearing your hair out in anger rather than addictive frustration. Unless, of course, you're a tenacious ten year old. They'll love it, I just liked it - and as for you? Who knows. It depends how many thousands of similar games you've played, basically.
