In The Games Corner – Attack Of The Mutant Camels, Commodore 64

The reason I like writing this article is because I get to research games that I have never heard of before and from having a look at games today I came across this game that I felt had such an unique name I had to write about it.

Attack of the Mutant Camels is a surrealist side scrolling shooter game that was released on the Commodore 64 in 1983. It was developed and published by Llamasoft. In the game you are in control of a jet plane and the aim is to kill the giant yellow camels before they get to the home base.

If you manage to kill all the camels you then are warped into a hyperspace sequence where you then have to avoid high speed missiles. Once you have completed that, you are then onto the next level.

The game apparently was very similar to the Atari 2600 game The Empire Strikes Back with the AT-AT being replaced by camels.
