Pyrotechnica Game Review Video Is Online

My video review of Psygnosis’s Pyrotechnica is now online via the usual channels!

This is another one of those games I wanted to enjoy but could not manage to. The graphics are just awesome, and I certainly count myself as a fan of the FM music. But I simply could not get over the awkward controls and the brutal enemies. As one commenter on YouTube already mentioned, this could have been another timeless PC classic had things been a bit less harsh and a bit more polished.

Oh well. Off to Corridor 7!

    Talk about Deja Vu…

    During the brief moment when you’re showing Descent gameplay, it’s almost identical to a moment from my own review of Descent, right down to the score of 2400 points! : O

    And yeah, from the looks of it, Pyrotechnica suffers from extremely twitchy controls. It’s amazing that even today, commercial game programmers STILL mess up the controls sometimes. I will admit though, it’s not as common now as it used to be.
