TRUN - MSX game based on movie Tron looks cool as!
In 1982 many of us had the pleasure of seeing the awesome science fiction film Tron! It pulled not just a computer hacker, but even the viewers into a digital world full of trippy colours, 80's computer graphics and fast paced digital motorbike destructive racing. Well fast forward to the end of last month and VG Source in collaboration with thepetsmode and Frankitu released the Tron clone ' TRUN ' for the MSX, which is also playable online.
If you've never seen Tron or played the game Snake then you don't know what you are missing as this game is rather addictive. Playing as a digitised motorbike on a grid like reference, you simply have to trap your opponent into a crash by using the lined barrier behind your bike as you move in a multitude of directions. Be careful though, because you can also crash into your own barrier, into your opponents or even into other objects and the sides of the game screen. The game is lovely to look at, has a great soundtrack, easy to play but every level is a challenge. Oh and you can even play with up to 4 players, so give it a go, it's grand!
