EPYX Impossible Mission (1984)
SPEECH page

 

Impossible Mission is a Commodore 64 platform gamer released in 1984 by Epyx which featured some early digital speech.

This page is a tribute to this famous speech with some funny and interesting variations made with different hardware effects or samplers.

editPLOT
in this game you are the good guy: a secret agent who has to stop an atomic menace by evil genius doctor Elvin Atombender (click to read the story which is pretty weird!).
You have to enter into a hidden fortress and collect all the pieces of a puzzle while dodging the lethal robot guards- but since you're not smart as the Elvin, you do not bring any weapons... the only solution is the rely on your athletic pixelated jump to face the not-so-friendly robots.

edit THE ORIGINAL SPEECH the 1984 edition uses digitized speech technology produced by third party company ESS- Electronic Speech Systems (also Ghostbusters, beach head II). At the time RAM was quite tiny and hardware samplers like Emulators or Fairlight were really expensive.
The game just welcomes the player with the threatening Elvin voice "Another visitor! Stay a while, stay forever! "
