Deathwatch - Late '95
From out of nowhere, with no name, Visual Design Studios (I
-think- that's the developer) comes out with a cutesy gun-totin' platform title. You
controlled a little warrior cartoon character who looks somewhat like the
"Plok!" video hero and who wields a big gun. He shoots and punches enemies,
grabs various spheres, and leaps on floating platforms and bottomless chasms in typical
platformer fashion. It was a very early game, but already seemed interesting - there were
several layers of smooth parallax scrolling, lots of color, and crisp animation. But it's
far too early to tell...
I guess it's the other way around, Deathmatch was a typo, the title is really Deathwatch, thanks Clay!
