Impossible Mission Remake
Impossible Mission has the user play a secret agent who must stop an evil genius. Professor Elvin Atombender is believed to be tampering with national security computers. The player must penetrate Atombender’s stronghold, racing against the clock to search the installation for pieces which form a password, all the while avoiding his deadly robots. Once in possession of all the password pieces, the player must correctly assemble the password pieces together and use the completed password in the main control room door, where the evil professor is hiding. One finds password pieces by searching furniture in the rooms. When searching, one can also find “Lift Resets” and “Snoozes.” They are used at computer terminals. The former will reset all moveable platforms, the latter will freeze all enemies in the room for a limited time. There are also two special rooms where additional lift resets and snoozes can be awarded for completing a musical puzzle.
The Commodore 64 version is notable for its early use of digitized speech. The digitized speech was provided by the company Electronic Speech Systems,who drastically raised their prices after Impossible Mission became a successful test case.
The sequel, Impossible Mission II, followed in 1988. It further complicated the quest with new traps and items. Elvin’s stronghold also grew in size, now divided into a number of towers which the player had to traverse, all the while picking up pieces of the password (an aural one this time around).
A 3D sequel was planned as a launch title for Epyx’s “Handy” system which eventually became the Atari Lynx. The game was eventually renamed ElectroCop and the released version had no apparent connection to the original Impossible Mission, but appeared similar to earlier version of the game in which it still bore the name.
In 1994, Impossible Mission 2025, the final game in the series (so far), was released for the Amiga. It kept the same idea as the previous games, and mainly featured updated graphics and audio, as well as allowing the player to choose between three different characters. The game also contains the original Impossible Mission.
