Today I installed Gorky 17 on my AmigaOne! 🙂 I have actually never played the game before, so this was the first time. First impressions were very good, so looking forward to play it a bit more in the near future.
Gorky 17 was ported by Hyperion Entertainment to AmigaOS 4 a while back. The game can be purchased through various Amiga dealers or can be bought and downloaded directly on the website of Hyperion. There is also a demo version available if you’d like to check it out before buying.
The game can be described as a combination of strategy and RPG (turn-based strategy in combat). You are in control of a squad of NATO soldiers who is on a mission to reveal a mystery. A mystery behind the appearance of hybrid creatures in a small Polish city called Lubin.
So what do you need to run it? An Amiga with 500 MHz or better CPU, 256 MB RAM, graphics card (Warp3D compatibility recommended), 700 MB HDD space, AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition.
Getting Gorky 17 installed was a piece of cake. I inserted the CD into the tray and ran the installation. It was just a matter of selecting the location I wanted the game on the HDD, as well as choosing a language.
Another intro will play and then the adventure starts for real…
Here is a few pics of the start of Gorky 17:
As mentioned at the beginning, this game looks very promising. I have played similar games in the past with turn-based strategy when it comes to combat. Always loved that with the first two Fallout games for example. You move around real-time, but when fighting starts, you enter turn-based mode. Sometimes it is nice when things aren’t so hectic on the screen like in various first person shooters. I must say that the graphics looks nice as well and the audio is excellent (creates a dark atmosphere fitting the games concept),
So, how does it run on an AmigaOne XE? Smooth, very smooth. Perfect I’d say. 😉 I don’t know about other configs, but I’m sure it’ll be just as a nice on a SAM Flex as well.
Now I’m looking forward to get back into the game again. 🙂 Hope you enjoyed the quick review of Gorky 17 and see you in another post here on Old School Game Blog soon!
