StarLifter music from an old computer game.

Years ago, I mean a very very long time ago when I was young we had a Commodore 64 and I had many favorite games, certain musics stood out for me, but there was one game called Star Lifter and I always loved the bit style music, I always thought it could be updated to a rock track.

I just found this track on YouTube and it brings back so many memories. I just thought I’d share, please enjoy.

Galaxy Empire on Google Play.

I downloaded the game to give it a try, played a bit and realised I have played a game almost exactly like this on the PC. None other than Empire Universe II.I am wondering how many elements seem to be copied, but Galaxy Empire is more of a dumbed down version with slicker graphics. Still I feel there might be some sort of copyright violation!

I was asking myself how the gameplay goes, but after the tutorial, building the few buildings, building a few ships, exploring a little bit of the galaxy then realising how dull this game really is.

You can’t conquer other planets, they purge guests and user accounts after a very short period. There is a chat room with rules that say you can’t discuss politics, religion and a couple of other things, which also makes that dull.

To be frank, no matter how slick you can make a game look, unless you get the gameplay right, which to me is wrong on a multiple number of levels you haven’t got a good game. To date, Galaxy Empire has to be the most boring game I have ever played.

1 out 5 stars.

Assassin’s Creed: Lineage

Last night the rain was pouring down and I really didn’t want to go anywhere. There wasn’t much I was interested in on the TV so I browsed throught the Playstation HomeĀ  network on my PS3.

What court my interest was a short film about 40 minutes long promoting Assassins Creed II. I didn’t know what to expect but the storyline was very well presented. Music and effects were also good. They clearly have spent a fair bit of money on this project.

It seemed to be missing something, or didn’t seem long enough in parts. It did feel very quick know. But gave a good account to the story as a whole.

For those that don’t have a PS3, you can watch the film on youtube. It’s something to enjoy if you’re a fan of the series like me.
