One of my more shameful habits is collecting Color Dreams games. These ghastly and unlicensed abominations haunt the memories of most children who had to game on a budget in the late ’80s to early ’90s. Color Dreams proper produced a handful of truly dreadful games like Baby Boomer and Tagin’ Dragon before splitting off into Bunch Games (a budget developer) and Wisdom Tree (made games based on the Bible.)
Today I stumbled across a Color Dreams game I’ve never heard of. The P’Radikus Conflict exacerbates its cheapness by dabbling in space sim mechanics. I should point out that it was for the NES and not the PC, where that type of game was gaining a considerable amount of ground in the early ’90s.
P’Radikus flaunts its aspirations like a spangly prostitute, but we know just how broken down it is beneath those layers. It also has absolutely no soundtrack save the random bars of a public-domain song thrown on at the beginning.
Here. Watch a full seven minutes of this entertainment disaster. If you dare….
