Liberation: Captive II

I've tried this game on my Amiga CD32 tonigth. This is one of the few games that shows the capabilities of the CD32. The intro sequence is impressive, all pixeled art, without rendered animations, with nice music and speech, very well done. In this adventure you take control of 4 robots, like in a Dungeon Master game, but the gameplay is a lot like DoomRPG or DeathMask.
