Another day, another Earok Amiga CD32 port release and once again it's a first person shooter in the form of Breathless. Developed by Fields of Vision, Breathless is a great action game as it has mood and atmosphere, huge levels to explore, enough combat to keep the player interested and a Doom style engine in lovely 256 AGA colours. Although this is the last of the AGA first person shooter Amiga CD32 ports by Earok, it's actually one of the best and runs much better than the previous release.
