Earlier this year I finally managed to track down Kevin MacFarland, author of the Atari ST BBS door game "Assassin." Thought you guys might enjoy my interview with him. Back then he went by the handle "C Monster." I also wrote up a blog post remembering Assassin. If anyone else remembers the game, I encourage you to leave a comment on the blog! (And, as I mention in the blog, you can still play Assassin today on Dark Force, The Grove, and Starfleet HQ BBSes.)
Here's a new game, I made in literally half a day. Assassin. ~~~~~~~~~~ Story ~~~~~~~~~~~ 5 Princesses, all whom lived in the once-peaceful kingdom of Corneria, have been kidnapped! You, Mr. Churchill, an Assassin-for-hire, must do through 5 Castles, and save all the prisoner Princesses. Each of the 5 castles, holds 11 rooms... the last of which, the princess resides! Each stage, Mr.Churchill enters the screen by falling, just because the thought amused me. ~~~~~~~~~~ Controls ~~~~~~~~~~~ -Left Difficulty B- Joystick - Move Fire - Attack with your sword You can't move and attack at the same time! -Left Difficulty A- Joystic - Move Fire - Hold to keep in "Attack mode." -Attack mode- Fire + Up - Jump upwards to dodge enemies Fire + Left - Jump Backwards to dodge enemies Fire + Right - Attack with your sword! Fire + Down - Throw a dagger! - All difficulties, Player 2 - Joystick - Move enemy, and enter 2 player mode, where Player 2 controls the enemy. If player 2 does nothing for long enough, the AI takes back control of the enemy. Your objective is to kill any enemies in your path, get to the 11th screen of all castles, and make contact(Literally!) with the princesses. When you save all 5 princesses, the game goes back to level 1 all over again. Hitting enemies with your sword, kills them instantly and yields 100 points, but is more dangerous to use Hitting enemies with your dagger, doesn't kill them instantly and only gives 10 points per hit, but is much safer. You can only be hit by enemies 5 times. On the 6th hit, you die, and you have to reboot the game. Enemies have to run into you to damage you. Currently the right difficulty does nothing, but I don't plan for this to be the only release of this game. Also, I have no Box-art yet. Assassin.bin
Anyone ever play the old Atari ST BBS door game "Assassin"? One of my old favorites. You can still play it today on The Grove and Dark Force BBSes. Anyway, I would love to get in touch with the game's authors. I think I may have found Wayne Myers on some social networks (though he hasn't responded to messages), but no luck with Kevin MacFarland. Anyone know/remember them? --Josh
