Heavy Metal Paradroid

Graftgold / Hewson 1986
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

Graftgold were one of the companies which started the (horrible) trend to release the same game in different 'editions' over and over again. Uridium and Paradroid were two of the earliest examples. Both excellent games.


Paradroid

Graftgold / Hewson 1985
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

Deep in space, all the robots on a ship have gone mad, defying all human orders. The player has to 'clean up', destroying all the robots. Sounds like your average shooter? Then be prepared for a twist: You take control of a kind of 'meta robot' which will attach itself to any other robot to take control of its functions.


Paradroid 2000

Coin-Age Ltd 1993
Genre: Action
Rating: -
Licence: Commercial
System: Acorn Archimedes
This was a port of Paradroid 90 to the Archimedes. The only difference seems to be a palette swap on some levels.

Paradroid 90

Graftgold / Hewson 1990
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

Graftgold never really made the big leap away from 8 bit systems. Although they created many great games on the Atari ST and the Amiga, the revolutionary and original things they had done were a thing of the past. In fact, they even 'remade' their most popular classics. Uridium got that treatment later, but for Paradroid, they at least had the humility not to call it Paradroid 2.


Paradroid II

Marc S. Seter 1993
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Amiga

Although the C64 classic had been remade on the Amiga by Graftgold themselves as Paradroid 90, this version had its rough edges. Paradroid II, a freeware remake of the original, came out a few years later. Hard to believe in these days of lawsuits, trademark, patent and 'intellectual property' trolling: The programmer got through with not only using the original name, but also with producing pretty much a carbon copy of the graphics and much of the gameplay.
