Alfred Challenge - Atari 2600



Run, jump and climb to reach the keys opening doors to the next level. Take care of the Tazniak and the Bukoï which have only one idea: Kill you!

Alfred had been anticipating this day for most of his life and trained intensely for it during the past year. Nobody knew why a passage appeared at the base of Mount Zepithar every eleven years, but everyone did know that once you entered the passage, you were caught in a universe of strange and hostile creatures seemingly from another world. Alone, Alfred would face the ultimate challenge, and should he succeed in his quest, he would become the next village chief. Can you help Alfred realize his goal and safely guide him through the maze of ladders, ropes, platforms and monsters?

Alfred Challenge is Ebivision's first game, written by Eric Bacher. This new release of Alfred Challenge features a professionaly printed label and manual, and all five Ebivision games sold through AtariAge feature a uniform label and manual design.

Alfred Challenge is a typical platform game, where you climb, jump and slide, while avoiding enemies and trying to figure your way out of each level. The added challenge is that you must find a series of keys in order to unlock various parts of each level. You can't just go through a level from one end to the other to get out - you often have to backtrack once you've opened a door in order to grab the next key. This means you really have to master sections of each level, which does help with the replay value. Unfortunately, Alfred Challenge isn't terribly exciting. The controls are adequate, but a little sluggish, and the sounds and graphics are merely average. For example, Alfred doesn't have any animation for climbing ladders - he merely slides up them sideways. You also can't start the game with the fire button, there's no score, and as far as I can tell, no way to earn additional lives. Alfred Challenge isn't a bad game, it's just a little dull, and it seems unfinished - especially compared to other games of its genre.
