Beschreibung[edit]

The intro.

Boom is some kind of Doom clon and wasreleased for the C64 in 1996. You move through different levels in a first-person view, shoot enemies and look for the exit. In contrast to Doom there is now continuous movement/scrolling. Instead, you move in steps, similar to roleplaying games like Dungeon Master or Eye of the Beholder. Furthermore, your weapon is not aimed at the middle of the screen. Instead, you seperately move a cross-hair across the screen. The cross-hair also buckles when shooting, dependeing on the type of weapon used.

The game was released in Hungarian language only. However, there is very little text, and knowledge of Hungarian is not required to play the game.


Design[edit]


Monsters attack .
Everything's quite yet.
An enemy, shortly before his decease




Level statistics show only the number of enemies killed and the total number enemies.
The game over screen is not really subtle.
The exit consists of the word "Exit".



Graphics[edit]

The uses a first-person view in HiRes. The upper part of the screen consists of window which show the enviroment. To the right, a map of the part of the level one's currently in is displayed. Below both of the windows is a status bar, where (from left to right) the number of keys collected, the player's health, the player's avatar, the current weapon and the available ammo for all three types of weapons.

Sound[edit]

There is music for the intro and the outro. During the game, there are only a few sound effects like gun shots or sound when picking up an item.
