Choose an Enemy

Moby ID: 26202

DOS version

A first-person fighting game with only 3 moves

The Good
unique in being first-person and having each hand control a corresponding on-screen fist. Surprisingly good GFX for an independent game of the time, probably due to images being digitized photos.

The Bad
Only 3 moves: left/right punch (Shift keys), setback (Space). BAD sound (PC Speaker only)

The Bottom Line
This is supposedly a demo of a never-released full game that would have featured more enemies and a face recognition program to allow turning photos of people into enemies. The story is completely rudimentary: someone attacks your girlfriend. Enemies have different look, fight scene background, and difficulty. Truly, the first-person perspective and use of digitized photos are the only unique things about this game.
