Into the Eagles Nest

In this penultimate round of HSC Season 14 we have a new game to play! This 1988 Pandora/Atari game is a Dandy/Gauntlet/Phantom style plod and shooter. I've only had a few goes before but it looks good. Join in, comment on the game and post a score ;)

 

Links: Fandal XEX, Atarimania Info also has original cartridge release and cracked version with trainer. Mount as "XEGS cartridge".
 

Scoring: Full HSC points, plus 3pts per mission completed (there are 4 to do).

 

 

Bonus game

Battle Eagle

We've played it before but it deserves more credit, 2013's quality vertical shooter from Jason Kelk and music from Der Luchs. Download Fandal XEX. 1pt per player per place.

Had a few plays, good learning curve and pretty decent game. Best score 42,600 got surrounded before I could get to the big ammo pile! More Phantom like in terms of the logistics; that's a game we should play next season :idea:

My idiocy idiocity? knows no bounds - so I get the lift pass, find the lift then get to choose Basement, Ground, 1st 2nd floors and I pick Ground which was the starting level "£$£$%"£$ the level is then well stacked with enemies, managed to get the pass again but got hammered. It tells you right at the start you are on the Ground floor :dunce:

 

Instructions say about rescuing men and guiding them using a "warning shot" to get them moving, looking forward to that bit!

 

3pts bonus per mission completed - there are 4

Do you want us to play through the missions each time we play, starting from ground floor each time?

I don't know enough about how it works - I figured each mission was set over the 4 floors? Start on each of the 4 missions is ok (I'm figuring it ends after each one).

Yes, the manual suggests that "at the end of your mission, you will be proclaimed a hero and a list of the highest scores will appear along with the score you've just earned" which sounds like each mission is a separate difficulty level.

Ok I was wrongly thinking each floor was a mission. So 4 missions, 3 floors each

I think there may be some overlap allowed at the front of your tank - gotta get stuck into them in this one!

I know its all part of of the game....but the Jerries re spawning in areas behind you, then running out of ammo.

 

The agony... great game though.

 

@TRBB

Fancy a Eagles Nest 2 remake :-)

I can draw the graphics,   but cant code for toffee.

OK McKong you can now concentrate on Battle Eagle :thumbsup: :thumbsup: Looking at the score it let you play through all 4 missions.

 

So we think the file version doesn't have the correct missions - perhaps it's down to RAM use/swapping and they couldn't fit it all in :ponder:

 

RT's video was about right it's a bit hard though this is proably deliberate as with a limited game length you don't want it being completed too quickly :)

 

tiime for next poll I think...
