Side-scrolling action game in the style of Turrican and Strider. The basic storyline is that you're a top assassin (hence the title) dropped behind enemy lines in search of the evil tyrant, Midan. You must navigate his highly complex underground lair, defeating all manner of baddies, until you finally put an end to his evil deeds.

There are a variety of weapons (including your standard boomerang!) and powerups to help you along your way through the five different levels.


Assassin Amiga In a rocket-base. Lots of enemies here...
Assassin Amiga The boss is not really the big green monster, but the jumping ninja-mutants (in lack of a better word) coming out of it.
Assassin Amiga You'll do a lot of climbing in this game.
Assassin Amiga The genetic asylum is the fourth level.
