Abandonware DOS title


Volfied is an arcade game developed and released by Taito Corporation in 1989. It's a puzzle game that gained popularity in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The game is named after the fictional planet "Volfied", where the gameplay is set.
In Volfied, players control a small spaceship called "Challenger" and must eliminate 80% or more of the playfield by enclosing areas with lines. The playfield consists of various geometric shapes and enemies that move around. However, players must be careful as they draw lines, as enemies can destroy the spaceship's line before it's completed, and touching an enemy or its trail results in losing a life.

Volfied reviews

Abandonware DOS: "This is a great example of revitalizing an old concept (Qix) and crafting a remake that enhances the original without losing its essence. Although I'm not particularly drawn to arcades, Volfied stood out as one of my favorite games from the 90s. The drive to "see the next level" motivated me to give my best shot at playing Volfied (even if my skills weren't top-notch). In fact, when I was capturing screenshots for Abandonware DOS, I found myself unable to tear away from the game."

Your Sinclair (1989): "Volfied gives us spectacular pictorial backgrounds — rather along the lines of circuit boards — and numerous baddies all over the screen who try to destroy your cursor ship in various dastardly ways. Giant snakes, mechanical ladybirds and numerous smaller nasties all make it a lively and challenging little thing — and popular too. It took me ages queueing up for a go. The only trouble is that YS readers can already play essentially the same game at home."

    It was one of my favorite games when I was playing in my childhood. The part that broke my nerves the most was the part where the hands opened and closed.
