Description of Rad Warrior

Rad Warrior is an early Palace Software (Barbarian) release that sets itself apart from other platform titles of the same period with puzzle elements and fluid animation. Despite 4-color CGA graphics, Rad Warrior takes full advantage of what the palette has to offer, and is a nice little game and well worth spending a few hours playing.

You are the last warrior of your race, who must don an anti-radiation suit (hence the game's name) and fight the Oppressors who have taken your people captive.

Level design is good, and there are many inventive physical puzzles that are fun to solve, although none of them is very difficult. Gameplay is very similar to Epyx' earlier Spiderbot, so those who like that game should definitely give it a try. Two thumbs up!

Playing in the Browser version you have to throw a stone with the space bar and go right or left to jump off the keys. If you can manage to download a dos copy the arrows on the 10 key jump you or it is a shift . This game is super hard without a joystick.

You have to find the Armor and activate it by merging. Land on it an face it. You have to get all the E energy modules hidden on the` 1st ~ level to enable the Armor . ( Hint )You might have to climb up higher to get them all. Once you have all the E Modules you will activate the Armor like IronMan!
Then you can fly with it . Do the same and find the Lasers further in. Lastly you have to find the" Bomb " and deliver it to the Reactor Core to win. May the Avengers be with you.

The New Firefox Browser seems to work better than the Google Chrome in older 32 bit systems.

Remind everyone playing Rad Warrior off the keyboard to hit the spacebar which throws a rock or fires the armor when going right or left in order to jump or the game is impossible to play without a joystick !
