Trap Runner for Amiga OCS / ECS  Gameplay Showcase

What sort of game is Trap Runner for Amiga?

This Amiga video game was developed by Night OWL Design, distributed by Retroguru and is designed to be always fair. So it is not like the Sqrxz series, but you have to be alert all the time to evade all of the traps, obstacles and monsters. Besides the genre-typical jumping and running you can duck to evade flying monsters and use magic in later levels, after collecting potions, which enables you to fill transparent ghost tiles with colour, to make them solid. There are also magical pills to collect, which make you change your own colour and render tiles with the same colour passable. Collect lots of other items to increase your score, gain extra lives or fulfil one of the special level missions (like: collect all four puzzle tiles in a level to open the exit). Two of the four levels in a world have a mission. The other two are free runs – just reach the exit.

This plattformer looks really nice. Interesting gameplay and the main character is creatively made. The music is cute too. This game shows that there is so much creativity within Amiga developers all over the world. It makes me smile a lot.
