The Exploits of Fingers Malone (1986, Mastertronic; 16k)

Mastertronic released a great deal of cheap classics for the Commodore computers, but for some reason, some of the better ones only ever made it to one single platform. As with Oblido and Mr. Puniverse from previous Unique Games entries, The Exploits of Fingers Malone only ever presented itself on the C16.

The Exploits of Fingers Malone is basically a variant of Miner 2049'er, Mr. Robot and other such games, where you need to walk over every bit of marked floor before you move on. There are a couple of refreshing twists here, though. First of all, it's not actually a traditional platformer, as you cannot jump - for moving up and down, you use one-way escalators and a ball-shaped lift. Each level will have two enemy sprites moving around just as quickly as you do (which is QUICK!), and my guess is, they're supposed to portray policemen, as you are apparently supposed to be a bank robber. As usual, there are also one-way conveyor belts in the levels, but in this game, you can change their directions by pushing the fire button next to them. But what's most unique about this game is how you actually make progress: you have to collect all the keys from the level before going to the safe, which you must open and get the loot from it before you can head towards the exit. Naturally, there's also a time limit in the game.

It doesn't need to be more than a fairly simple idea that can add plenty of depth for an old genre, but you have to do it either very carefully not to mess the basic idea up, or throw some wacky paint on it to see if your random ideas actually have a chance to work. Of course, I don't really know what happened here, but somehow, the game works. It's a bit rough and difficult due to its raving mad speed, but I cannot think of a reason why wouldn't I recommend this game to any platforming fan. Since it's a C16 exclusive, it only adds to the list of good potential games to own in your forthcoming C16 library, unless you already have it.
