Amiga Game Intros Vol. 5: It Came From The Desert (Cinemaware, 1989)

Cinemaware was always renowned for their graphically intense games, and 1989’s It Came From The Desert is no exception here. The intro is very short, but it does its job at setting the mood for the game, which is an homage to 1950s horror b-movies. It’s just a short tracking shot over a desert scene, but it has some impressive looking parallax scrolling and a great voice sample. The little touches like the animated rabbit and birds or the typical 1950s title font are what sells it to the player. The only thing that’s missing to me is an impact sound for the meteor. Video after the jump.
