Sorceress Zoldrane needs to be stopped!
Nicky Boom is a platformer, really classic in structure and build, in which you have to find and stop Zoldrane, an evil sorceress who kidnapped and sent the player's grandfather into a faraway space! Thus, you need to gather yourself and go on a sidescrolling left to right mission, and have him rescued. On tehway lots of enemies, lots of platforming and lots of action await. Thus, Nicky Boom is a classic, yet very well produced game, really satisfying to play. Also, here and there, with a few nicely placed tiles and with interesting designs, you also will feel like you are solving puzzles which, while not the central part of the game, is still pretty much part of the journey. It is true that the game is built in such a fashion that it never really feels like it is very hard, but there are portions where you need to be careful. And, with good graphics, that feel very retro 8bit like, you will find the game to be very satisfying to play. A good alternative is Xargon, older yet similar, and with that shareware construction that is just top notch.
