TrollsSTORY / GAMEPLAY
You are a brave Troll fighting your way through cute-looking and vividly colored environments, trying to rescue as many baby trolls as possible that are kept captives. Each level has a certain number of babies to save before you will be able to go to the next via a portal called PigStop. At the beginning, your only chance to survive is to jump onto each enemy's head and avoid contact in general but as the game progresses you'll find a Yo-Yo that can be used not only as a weapon but also as a tool that will smash blocks and open pathways. The gameplay and the overall level design remind us of Zool (and Zool 2) and Troll is surely a very addictive platform game as it offers great action, candy visuals and so much fun.

GRAPHICS / SOUND
The graphics on the Amiga OCS are colorful and funny with smooth animation. Compared to the AGA, the latter has obviously more colors while the foregrounds and backgrounds are more detailed. The OCS version has up to 60 simultaneous colors so the overall outcome is very pleasant to the eye.0 The sound on the Amiga is equally fun, featuring some cool music scores and cartoonish, sampled sound effects!
