UWOL: Quest for Money is a port of a homebrew arcade game, originally developed for ZX Spectrum by the Spanish development team, The Mojon Twins. It was ported to the Sega Mega Drive by Shiru in 4 March 2010, and was released physically by 1985 Alternativo in October 2013. UWOL is a really fun game that resembles a lot the 80s and 90s arcades. This game features 55 Levels where the player needs to find money on a millionaire mansion that is haunted by our classic monsters.
This game later was also included in the multi-cart release, Mega Games Almanac in 2019.
Uwol likes money. One day, he heard about Storm Palace, a very old manor full of gold coins, that located next to Canutos Forest. Although the manor was guarded by dangerous creatures, Uwol decided not to give up until he get at least 255 coins.
The problem is that it won’t be very easy… the cellar of Storm Palace are quite deep and are full of nooks and crannies. Besides, the intricate disposition of rooms makes it very easy to get lost and go back to the starting point. That’s what happened to Uwol: his greed made him to get deeper and deeper into the manor so he got lost and trapped in the lowest labyrinth, inhabited by Vampy, Franky, Fanty and Wolfy, who will try by all means to make Uwol fail in his task.
The game is about to steal the most amount of coins as possible. Uwol won’t want to end his mission until he collects a minimum of 255 of those. The manor rooms are arranged like a pyramid, starting from the very top, and after you clean a room of coins you will be given the chance to choose which path (left or right) to take. You select a path walking over one of the arrows which appear and pressing Down.
If you get to the bottom of the pyramid and you haven’t gathered enough coins you get back to top and start over. This time, you should choose another path ’cause the already visited rooms will be empty. Use the pyramid map to know which rooms are visited and which aren’t.
You have three enemies which follow pretty linear paths, but once the time ends one of them will summon Fanty which will chase you relentlessly all accross the screen.
During gameplay, if you touch a baddie you’ll lose your clothes. Look for a tee-shirt nearby, otherwise you’ll die on the next touch by a baddie.
When you get a certain ammount of points, you’ll be rewarded with an extra life..
