Mr Freeze (Firebird Silver £2.50)

Memories

What can you say about Mr Freeze? It was a platform game very much in the mold of Manic Miner. Originally written by David T. Clark on the Spectrum, it was then converted for the C64 by Kevin A. Moughtin. Later it was converted to the BBC Micro by Timothy Wilkinson and finally David T. Clark converted it himself for the Amstrad CPC.

The game featured well defined graphics and it was quite a tough game to play. Jumps had to be pixel perfect, and you couldn’t waste any time climbing up the ladders as the lasers would get you if you didn’t get out of the way pronto.

Worthy cause

After its initial release, Mr Freeze was included in the Spectrum charity compilation cassette War On Want, which raised money to help combat poverty in the third world.

    The Firebird logo, which featured on the loading screen, was the same one which was used on Shorts Fuse, and was designed by Marco Duroe. Marco went on to design graphics for a number of Gremlin titles in the early 80s.
