Exploring Atlantis
9:23 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Applelinks' ShareAware recently dove into Atlantis, Fun Pause's arcade action shareware title. Atlantis follows the classic "ball matching" formula giving players a strategic action experience spanning 81 levels. ShareAware examines the game and takes a look at the strategies necessary to successfully complete levels.

Of course, there are power-ups along the way. You get these by purchasing them with credits collected throughout the game, although some apparently just show up in your gun from time to time. You'll need them, too, because this game can get exceptionally difficult. The first few times I played it, I couldn't even finish the first level, which is never a good sign. Don't be alarmed, though, if this happens to you, too. You just have to get into the rhythm of the game. Although you can utilize different strategies, you still have to play Atlantis the way the game wants you to. Once I developed a method that seemed to match the flow of the action, I progressed without much difficulty.
Atlantis requires a G3/400 Mhz with 128 MB RAM and 40 MB harddisk space, running MacOSX 10.1 or better. It can be downloaded from the Fun Pause website or from the Macgamefiles.com link below.
