Oink! is brilliant value for money and the games are all very playable.
A winner! The graphics are really neat, especially in the later stages of the game in the dungeon and palace. I only hope that all you non-C64 owners don't have to wait too long for conversions.
Scrolling is pretty smooth and the tune almost identical to the original. Graphics are nice - watch out for the Coke cans.
Milk Race doesn't break any new ground in gameplay - but it is entertaining, exciting, topical and good value for just two quid.
This is the best Ocean game for a long time.
It's a great idea and the music is top notch... but it fails. Mostly because of the graphics and terrible standard of animation.
Stryfe is a good bet if you fancy a Gauntlet-like bash with the emphasis very much on the bashing!
GFL Championship Football is a nice try which doesn't quite come off - it lacks the essential action ingredient vital for this sort of game.
After the first Saboteur, this game is dull.
Spend a bit of time on Wiz and you'll be rewarded with an entertaining arcade adventure.
This is basically a watered down version of Datasoft's two year old hit Bruce Lee, but without the depth offered by that great golden oldie!
Unless you've got good reason, give this one a miss.
Wonder at the smoothly scrolling horizon, gasp at the wire-frame buildings that you can fly straight through, swoon at the sheer size of this evergreen arcade/adventure/flight simulator. But, most of all, go out and buy it!
Another highly polished conversion from US Gold.
The graphics are very well defined, as is the sound with various tunes to be heard upon losing or winning. But make sure to get the disc version - it's much better value!
A load of old tosh.
With simple graphics, and naff sound, you would think this game was a right bore... Well, you're right, but it does have a slight addictiveness.
If you thought the arcade adventure was dead, think again... This is the best game on the Amstrad since Batman.
A dictionary definition of Enterprise includes the following phrases "daring spirit" and "a bold attempt". Neither fit this Enterprise. It's directly from the clone zone.
Although graphically and musically stunning, and a brave innovative idea, Ball Breaker falls heavily at the last hurdle because it simply isn't playable compared with Arkanoid and Krakout.
The big appeal of the game is that it offers two side-by-side cockpit displays, and can be played three-handed: by one player against the computer, two players against each other, or two players against the computer.
If you're already a Binary Vision fan, you won't want to miss this. It's very enjoyable... and there are some great tunes too.
I was completely and utterly addicted to the arcade version of this, and I couldn't wait for the home conversions to arrive. Well, they have... and I must say I was rather disappointed by all of them.
Strangely playable and nothing if not annoyingly addictive.
Great graphics and sound plus fiendish problems and great gameplay.
Sleuthing American-style. Not too difficult... and I rate it as Fergus' best to date.
A very funny, if occasionally childish, game. It's worth putting up with for the good bits.
An excellent adventure.
Nice pics and sound, although it's not as good as Defender Of The Crown. The playability is there, but the game is a bit easy.
This is an incredible game! It's instantly playable, but you will soon find yourself being shot down time and time again, unless you think about what you're doing.
Extremely playable and fun, whilst giving an accurate account of submarine warfare, a must for every simulation addict.
A good game, but nothing special. Computer hackers will love it though.
