Action Reflex

Written by Christian Urquhart, author of Daley Thompson's Decathlon and Xecutor, Action Reflex, originally published by Mirrorsoft, deals with the antics of a crazy bouncing ball. Trapped inside a linked series of three mazes, it must avoid a variety of static and moving obstacles, gain points to collect helpful objects and negotiate air events and planes of water - all in a desperate bid for rubber ball freedom (whatever that may be).

Rather like Bounder, Cauldron II and the recently released Hopping Mad in style, Action Reflex still comes across as a very playable game. Its bright and colourful backdrops hide an immense array of dangerous hazards, helpful and harmful objects, secret passages and unusually safe short cuts. With so many different features you're practically guaranteed hours and hours of play. If you've enjoyed other ball-bouncing games, get yer hands on this! It's a little bundle of uncontrollable fun.
