This was one of my very first Home Computers games. Petals of Doom on the Commodore C16 (Boo..!) Yeah, I know the C16 sucks, but this Dropzone/Defender clone is actually quite fun (Fun, what, on a Commodore C16?) Yes, this is one of the very few arcade games that I owned back in the day, 1987-88′ish. You control a Jetpack powered Space Gardener (Im not kidding) whose job it is to protect the flower plantation as it reaches maturity, only then will the energy curtains disappear (I’m not making this up, it’s on the game cover notes), so you can progress to the next level. But that is not all, no, trapped with you inside the “Eerie Space Cavern” are PLANT HATING BUGS, yes, they are anti plant millitants…? Seriously, they hate your plantation and destroy your greens at every opportunity, so it’s up to you, to go on an intergalactic bug hunt, as you fly around blasting them with your laser. There is no in-game music, the sound effects are pretty good, the gameplay and animation are above average. I’d recommend this above most C16 games. I’ve included the cool game cover art above. Petals of Doom, for the Commodore C16, 1985 Gremlin Graphics.
