T.E.A.R.S. Episode 17 – Project-X

It’s time for T.E.A.R.S.! No, not the sort that comes out of your eyes when you’re sad, but another episode of The Excellent Amiga Review Show! This time I’ll be taking a look at Team 17’s shoot’em-up Project X.

Released in 1992, Project X was billed as an arcade quality game that would have Amiga owners looking for the coin slot. It had its fans, but there were many who picked on the games less fine qualities, including one that I point out in this video!

Anyways, enjoy the show! 🙂

    Bought this back in 92 Never got past level 3 to bloody hard! Graphics were impressive but uninspired.

    Look forward to seeing more. Have you tried Datastorm? A cracking good defender/dropzone clone and probably the best in existence! Never came out on anything but the Amiga and not that well know but Jaz from C+VG gave it 97%

    Enjoyed the vid mate. For me, it’s the best game in it’s genre, but it’s a subjective thing.

    You don’t have to use Space to select a weapon. If you press left then right quickly (Daley Thompson’s style), you can select that way. Worked very well on a joystick back in the 90’s, not as great on a keyboard or pad, but still better than using space.

    I’d definitely recomend you try out the special edition. The levels are significantly shorter, enemies take less to kill and, most importantly, if you die it starts you with a reasonable build up of weapons rather than dropping you down to nothing. Problem with the original version is, although it let you start on the level you died from (up to level 3), it dropped your weapons so low that you couldn’t actually kill anything. Never managed to get past the 2nd level on the original one (Scopie – i’m impressed by you making it to level 3 mate), but i can get to the fourth on the Special Edition.

      Thanks for telling me that! I had no idea you could select your weapons simply by waggling the joystick. Guess that’s what happens when you don’t have the instructions handy 🙂

      I’ve recently played the Special Edition and I must say that it certainly is an improvement. The difficulty level feels much more balanced.
