Video Game / Clyde's Revenge
is a platform computer game released by Moonlite Software in 1995. It is the sequel to Clyde's Adventure
. The objective is to explore castles and collect all the stones. With no "enemies," Clyde's Revenge
is predominantly a puzzle game. The challenge comes from avoiding traps and using Clyde's magic wand to manipulate the environment. The game has four episodes.
Originally, episode one was shareware, while the other episodes were available only upon registration. Moonlite Software has since released the entire game as freeware.Needs Wiki Magic Love
This Video Game contains examples of:
- Amazing Technicolor World: The "castles" are trippy Design Student's Orgasms of flashing and fading animated bricks and blocks of various sizes and shapes, with equally abstract "skies" in the background.
- Control Room Puzzle: If a door is not opened with a key, it's usually opened this way.
- Easier Than Easy: The lowest difficulty setting has Clyde being invincible (until a brick he removed reappears into him).
- Episodic Game: There are four episode making up this game.
- Falling Damage: One of the reasons for the game's difficulty, especially as there are places where it's unavoidable.
- Gravity Screw: Touching an anti-gravity switch causes gravity for Clyde to reverse, until he touches another such switch.
- Inconveniently Placed Conveyor Belt: Almost every level, starting with the sixth, has these, often with low ceilings preventing passage against their directions of movement. Many puzzles involve changing this direction, or stopping them entirely.
- Interchangeable Antimatter Keys: Averted. One you get a gold or silver key in a level, you can open all the locks of the same kind in the castle.
- Locked Door: You will encounter a number of these, and you must find the key to unlock them and progress.
- Marathon Level: Every single level is a gigantic labyrinth with several hundreds of stones to collect.
- Mercy Invincibility: Averted. Any contact with a hazard causes your health to steadily decrease, at a rate depending on the difficulty level.
- No Antagonist: It's just Clyde going through these castles and trying not to run out of energy.
- No Plot? No Problem!: There is no explanation for why Clyde is going through the castles and collecting stones.
- Springs, Springs Everywhere: Very ubiquitous. They send you a bit higher than the height you fell from, so there is theoretically no limit to how high you can jump with them.
- Tube Travel: Starting from the 8th level, there are tubes that transport Clyde around. They can be traveled both ways.
- A Winner is You: Winning the game just gives you a message saying, "Congratulations! All Castles Complete!", and then the game tells you the number of attempts and time spent on each castle (accompanied by screenshots of the castles).
