This game strikes me as a fairly tame piece of software. Clever software it may be with vast computer generated territories to explore, complex maps and elements of skill and planning required to succeed, but it lacks immediacy and doesn't really use the Amiga to its full.
If the idea behind Seven Cities appeals to you, then you will certainly enjoy the game. If you come across it by chance, the poor graphics and sound are likely to put you off. It is a pity that the programmers were not allowed to enhance the game, rather than make a straight copy of an existing version. This is not the way forward.
Commercialisé sur C 64 et Apple début 85, la version Amiga n'innove pas. Pauvreté des graphismes, de la bande son et de l'animation. Dommage !
The title screen offers this - all hi-res and period music - but the disappointment is that this is a conversion par excellence. Apart from the improved hardware performance, you might as well play it on the 64.
Das Entdeckerspiel „Seven Cities of Gold“ ist inhaltlich mit den bekannten Versionen identisch, allerdings wurde die Grafik stark verbessert. Ein weiterer Vorteil der Amiga-Version ist das schnelle Diskettenlaufwerk, was sich beim Kartengenerator von „Seven Cities of Gold“ sehr positiv bemerkbar macht.
