The Reaper - 1990


Publisher: Ubi Soft
Format: ZX Spectrum

Every 500 years immortal wise men bring back to life a valiant warrior, an expert in martial arts, before putting him to the test. Projected into a maze, he must save his friends' souls and face terrible enemies.

This year, you have been chosen by the Council. Will you overcome the challenge?

Exciting developer fact:

Everyone seemed to like the large characters in the Saboteur games, so it would have made sense to make more games with large sprites.
But I wasn't very sensible, so I made a game with tiny sprites.

I added speech bubbles with rude language in them, thinking that the game would get banned, or at least become 'controversial', and everyone would rush out and buy it.

They didn't :-)
