Description of Oscar
A great platform game that was more successful on the Amiga, Oscar casts you in the role of Oscar, a cutesy chipmunk whose task is to find little clones of himself in various movie backdrops.
Gameplay is conventional platform fare, but is executed in a very polished manner typical of a Flair release. The game's highlights are the well-designed and diverse levels, each with its own theme, power-ups, hidden surprises, and enemies. Thanks to Oscar's all-encompassing premise of being set in movieland, the designers let their imagination run wild in designing levels, which range from sci-fi land, to Castlevania-style creepy cemetery, to Western saloons and beyond. Oscar wears appropriate clothes in each scene, and even doodles when he's idle (heh, there's a poet in me) in ways appropriate to that scene. With attractive graphics, great soundtrack, fluid controls, diverse levels, and the difficulty level that is just right, Oscar is a great platform game that deserves a second chance. Two thumbs up!
