Neuronics is a puzzle game by Thalion that I remember playing on the Amiga. It’s a simple game, where you have to switch and match shapes in order to make them disappear and move onto the next level. It’s one of those games where you play for what seems like two minutes, but is in fact two hours. Give it a go if you want a puzzle game to pass the time. This one is fun to play, looks good and is easy to get into…
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I used a cheat to skip levels.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once the final level is beaten, a picture appears. It shows a man looking through a window of a spaceship at the planet earth with the words ‘THE END’ below it. It’s quite well drawn, given the C64’s capabilities. The game then restarts.
Neil: Better than expected. The picture is nice, but there’s nothing else to report. I was expecting a ‘WELL DONE’ message, so I was pleasantly surprised. 3/10.
Vinny: I’ve never actually played this game, but I’ll give it a try now that Neil has recommended it…
As for the ending… it’s quite nice. A cool image and a lovely tune. 5/10 from me too.
Andrew Fisher: Thalion did not release many games (in fact, only 3) for the C64 and two of them are puzzle games.
Andy Vasiey: Not a bad ending picture at all, although could do with a bit of refinement. Quite the surprise it even exists though. Wouldn’t have expected it.
Brendan Phoenix: I like the end pic a lot, a bit Project Firestart-y.
For a puzzle game it really is a great ending pic and I must try the game out.
FINAL SAY: Better than expected, but there’s nothing else to report.
G.E. RATING: 4 / 10
