EPYX Expands Line Of VIC-20 Software

EPYX has released two new action games, Crush, Crumble and Chomp! and Rescue at Rigel, for the VIC-20.

Crush, Crumble and Chomp!, a movie monster game, lets the player assume the role of any one of six hungry man-eating beasts in more than 100 possible scenarios. To satisfy his enormous appetite, the player snacks on his opponents, while doing battle with National Guard tanks, infantry, helicopters, and even a team of mad scientists. The player can wreak havoc on any one of four major cities — New York City, San Francisco, Tokyo and Washington, D.C.

Rescue at Rigel, a space adventure, takes the player into a maze-like, six-floor, 60-room complex inhabited by an alien insectoid race, the Tollah. As Sudden Smith, the player has 60 minutes to find ten humans held captive inside the labyrinth and beam them up to a rescue ship.

During the mission, the player is up against hostile Tollahs, two types of armed robots, a huge amoebic slug called a plasmoid, and a dangerous six-legged cerbanth. The player must find his way through the alien complex and rescue the prisoners — all in one hour.

Crush, Crumble and Chomp! and Rescue at Rigel are available on cassette for the VIC-20 (16K expander required), Atari 400/ 800 (32K), and TRS-80 (Level II, 16K), and on disk for the Atari 400/800 (32K), Apple (48K with Applesoft in ROM), and TRS-80 (TRSDOS 32K). The suggested retail price is $29.95.
