Magic Bytes is a German company relatively new to the UK scene. Some gamers may remember them for the excellent Western Games
with this astonishing graphics. Their new association with Gremlin hopefully help them introduce a degree of extra playability into their games. Pink Panther would certainly have benefited from that. A game for ardent Pink Panther fans only.
It's all pretty enough, but the graphics are nothing special by 16-bit standards and the soundtrack is a pale (pink?) imitation of the Mancini original. 'Nuff said.
But where the Amiga versions loads in one go, the ST requires very lengthy loads, both when the player dies and on choosing a level. After a few deaths these loads become irritating. With character control little improved, the ST game is not a lot of fun to play.
Pink Panther is a truly abominable game. The graphics and sound may be well drawn and implemented but the game's playability is appalling. Should you manage to guide the sleepwalking master about, then the inspector will certainly get you. What a pity the programmers didn't make the game a little more easy to play - I sat and tried to play the game for over two hours without making much progress. So, unless you're an ardent Panther fan or you have the patience of Job, then I would strongly advise you to leave the Pink Panther strictly alone.
