The Last Eichhof
If you look up the word Novel in a Swiss dictionary, you will find this game in capital
letters and bold type! Your object is to 'save the brewery of eichhof (with it's great beers)
from the imperium of "big beers" '. You do this by flying around in a sooped up beer bottle
bashing other bottles and crates until they have dirty great hangovers. Naturally.
After the end of each level, you can buy new bottles to attach onto your craft, and you can
also place them where you see fit. The game itself is quite tough, sometimes a little annoying
in places, but overall good fun. It is highly advisable to stock up on 'Bonus Guttere' or lives
at the shop as you will find that you will be needing them.
There are no end of cheesey musical interludes and comments throughout the game, which
greatly contribute to the download size, but not an awful lot to the game itself. You score in
litres of beer you smash up, and the Highest Scorers are known as the Best Beers Drinkers!
Overall, this is a game which tries to be a bit different around a normal theme, and succeeds to
a certain measure. Download and see for yourself. - Tom Crofts
