|★ AMSTRAD CPC ★ GAMESLIST ★ PRISON BLUES (c) WOW SOFTWARE ★|
"As a desperate criminal locked up in one of Her Majesty's prisons, you are slowly going stir crazy. Escape! That is your only thought. Getting out of your present apartment is your first priority, but then can you escape from the prison confines to freedom or are you destined to continue your PRISON BLUES?"
This is one of Simon's earlier games as such, it tends to be a little easier than some of his other games Therefore, it is suitable for beginners. Having said that, it's no pushover
Escaping from your cell is, as the intro says, your first problem This is easily achieved once you've EXAMined a few things and discovered that your cell door appears to have e Yale lock! Other puzzles involve beating a fellow inmate unconscious, drugging a guard stealing valuable medical equipment and destroying an electric fence. (Moral question : Are you really sure that you want this dangerous character to escape?) All of which is enough to add several more years to your sentence should you be recaptured.
There are several nice touches in the game a reference to the old TV series "Porridge" in which two of the principal characters had half of a game board each, and of course there is a squirrel. All of this makes this a game well worth a look especially as it is available for a number of different machines.

L'Amstrad CPC est une machine 8 bits à base d'un Z80 à 4MHz. Le premier de la gamme fut le CPC 464 en 1984, équipé d'un lecteur de cassettes intégré il se plaçait en concurrent du Commodore C64 beaucoup plus compliqué à utiliser et plus cher. Ce fut un réel succès et sorti cette même années le CPC 664 équipé d'un lecteur de disquettes trois pouces intégré. Sa vie fut de courte durée puisqu'en 1985 il fut remplacé par le CPC 6128 qui était plus compact, plus soigné et surtout qui avait 128Ko de RAM au lieu de 64Ko.
