Review
The Killing Game ShowSTORY / GAMEPLAY
In The Killing Game Show, the story takes place somewhere in the future where you control an armed robot and you must either evade or shoot enemies that swarm the platforms you have to climb. You actually are a criminal participating in a deadly TV show to survive and set free upon success. Your goal is to make your way upwards, to the level's exit within a specific time limit. When this limit ends, toxic liquid will begin to rise from below and will eventually destroy you. Also, the enemy hordes keep re-spawning which will make your survival much harder. In each level you have the ability to check the map by pressing the relevant key and in addition you can use special gadgets or items -like shaped keys to open certain gates- to unlock different sections in each level. Overall, the game is really tough and if you lose a life you will be forced to play the level from the very start. There is also a replay function where you can fast-forward gameplay. Note that this feature was unique back in the early 90s and pretty useful for such a tough game.

GRAPHICS / SOUND
The Atari ST version has nicely designed environments. The sprites' animation is fast but the scrolling suffers sometimes from slight frame-rate drops. The game also features nice sound effects, speech and an intense in-game music score composed with the ST Digi-Synth. The ST version is very decent in every aspect and plays greatly. Our only complaint is that the impressive intro sequence is soundless and that you can't have music and sound effects simultaneously.
