Major Percy - Manic Mercenary

David Rushall, 1985

Guide Major Percy through mysterious worlds, collecting the items to open the door to the next. Experience levels such as "The Attack of the Mutant Cameras", "The Friz-Beez", "The Lunatics" and "Watt on Earth" (sad, isn't it).

Sadly, this plays extremely slowly at normal machine speeds, but is just about playable if you can over-clock an emulator a little.

A tribute to Manic Minor, written in pure BASIC. Written with discussion with Mark Maplethorpe, who wrote something similar for his Oric 1 at the same time.
