Excerpt from Genesis Game Guide by The Scribe

NAME:             The Killing Game Show
AUTHOR/VENDOR:    Raising Hell/Psygnosis/Electronic Arts
RELEASED:         1991
TYPE:             Action
LANGUAGE:         Englisn

PREMISE:          "And now it's time for the greatest show on Earth!"  Not
                  if you're one of the contestants - strapped inside an
                  ostrich-like mecha within the deep caverns of a deserted
                  island that's slowly sinking.  Your sole purpose is to
                  get out alive, but that won't be so easy - what with all
                  booby traps, unstable rock, and steadily rising water.
                  In the meantime, your predicament is being broadcast to
                  thousands of blood-hungery TV viewers around the world.
                  "Get ready to die!" the announcer screams, and with that
                  the show begins....

IMPRESSIONS:      Yet another Amiga classic by the boys from Scotland that
                  makes a faithful port to the G/MD.  Take your standard
                  platform game, throw in a shooter element, then add a
                  liberal dash of inescapable hazards that must be avoided
                  to successfully complete a given stage, and you wind up
                  with a game that is either extremely challenging or
                  considerably frustrating.  My only real gripe is that
                  the premise doesn't fit all that well.

VARIATIONS:       Fatal Rewind (American release)

This game is a classic! I remember playing it on the Amiga many moons ago, along with Chaos Engine, Dune:The Battle for Arrakis........ Glad to se these made it onto the good old Genesis!!!! This game in p[articular is quite a challenge! It gets quite technical the later on you get almost introducing a 'puzzle' element by introducing different shaped keys fo certain doors. I can imagine it would be too hard for most though, especially for gamers these days.
