Computer Game For ZX Spectrum, Amstrad CPC, Commodore 64, Oric 1 And Oric Atmos, And MSX (ISBN 1 85160 001 9)

Domark Created An Action Game Split Into Three Separate Sections, Inspired By Scenes From The James Bond Film. The Game Starts With The Famous Bond Gun Barrel Scene.

In The First Section Set In Paris, James Bond Commandeers A Taxi To Follow “May Day” (Grace Jones) Who Has Parachuted From The Eiffel Tower. Roadblocks And Police Cars Are Out To Stop Bond, Who Can Shoot His Pistol At Them To Get Them Out Of The Way. The Display Is In Three Sections – An Overhead Map Of Paris, A Small 3D View From The Car’s Point Of View, And A Scanner Showing May Day’s Height. James Must Arrive At The Right Location To Catch Her As She Lands.

In The Second Section, James Must Help Stacey Sutton (Tanya Roberts) Escape From San Francisco City Hall, Which Is On Fire. Each Room Is Displayed From A Side-On Perspective. James Must Collect Useful Objects To Get Through The Floors Of The Building, Such As Keys To Open Doors And Buckets Of Water To Stop The Progress Of The Fire.

In The Third And Final Section, James Must Collect The Code Numbers To Stop The Detonation Of Zorin’s (Christopher Walken) Bomb. Bond Runs Around The Mine, Avoiding Rockfalls And Long Drops. Among The Objects He Can Pick Up Are A Grapnel Gun (To Fire Ropes Upward Which He Can Climb To Safety) And A Plank Of Wood To Bridge Gaps. May Day Is Also Somewhere In The Mine.
