Conan is a single screen platformer game released in 1984 by Datasoft for the Commodore 64.
The game is based on the character Conan the Barbarian from the fantasy novels by Robert E. Howard. The game features two high-resolution graphics modes, sprites, bit-mapping, character collision detection, smooth scrolling, and 16 colors.
The game follows the story of Conan, who must navigate through a series of levels filled with enemies and obstacles to reach the Hall of Volta and defeat the wizard who resides there. The game features a variety of enemies, including snakes, spiders, and bats, as well as traps such as spikes and falling rocks. Conan can attack enemies with his sword and jump over obstacles to progress through the levels.
The game’s graphics and sound are typical of early Commodore 64 games, with simple but colorful graphics and basic sound effects. The game’s difficulty is relatively high, with challenging levels and enemies that require precise timing and skill to defeat.
Overall, Conan is a fun and challenging platformer game for the Commodore 64 that is worth playing for fans of the genre. However, the game’s graphics and sound may seem dated to modern gamers, and the difficulty may be frustrating for some players. If you are a fan of classic platformer games and are looking for a challenge, Conan is definitely worth checking out.
