“The ABDUCTION of Oscar Z” is an arcade game where a boy, stolen
from planet Earth along with some of his farm’s animals, tries
to escape from an evil, yet somewhat clumsy alien…
The action integrates different fast-paced dynamics where Oscar
will have to fight for his life on endless, exotic landscapes
avoiding UFO attacks, hostile birds and clumsy native beings
while collecting precious energy items to survive.
Frenetic races, defensive attacks, all sorts of obstacles and
traps and even piloting an alien mini-spaceship! Young Oscar
will give his very best to free his animals, and above all,
Gunter, his pet dog!
Somewhere deep in her heart, little Cris knew she shouldn’t have
approached that odd door. Firstly, there was NEVER such thing as a door
on that wall, at least as far as she could remember. Where did it come
from? Second, reckoned the girl, how on earth could that door open to
such an odd world, gleaming with unearthly colors in the place where the
living room should be?
In the quiet darkness of the madrilenian night, an idea struck her
suddenly; could this have to do with the recent disappearance of her
little sister? She got closer, called out “Hello? Anybody there?”, and
closer… “Can you hear me?” till it was too late. A strange force pulled
her tiny body through the door, and before she could say “Help” she
found herself falling down and down into a world of… dreams?
“Cris. Odd prelude” is an adventure game in a world of dreams where
anything can happen.
The story runs on Amstrad 464 and 6128 on mode 0 with gorgeous 16
colors. It features exploration, platforms and some animated enemies
spread over oneiric landscapes.
The game was presented to the
contest and we had the honor to obtain two awards: 4th best game and
the amazing @retrospiel
physical distribution award. We'll be published!
