Review of 'Psytraxx'

Rating:2 User: The Dean of Games

1984 The Edge (UK)
by Andrew Beale and Jack Wilkes

The story goes something like helping Microbot collect parts of a giant microchip to make his escape from the enormous circuit board he feel into.

This was one of my first games and it was really a big disappointment. The game is too big for its own good, it has over 1000 screens and, maybe because of the authors laziness, they all look alike, so it becomes very boring.
There is no mention anywhere but our main character, the robot, looks very similar to 'Microbot', the previous game from this programming duo. 'Microbot' instead was a really appealing game, with interesting features, unfortunately 'Psytraxx' fails the maintain to standard.
