Amstrad Action

Amstrad CPC464

Published in Amstrad Action #29

There are 16 levels which are several screens wide and filled with explosives and weapons which you must shoot. When all have been destroyed you make you way to the exit and go to the next level. Inside the mazes there are rebel forces which are out to get rid of your five lives. There's something about this game that makes it incredibly addictive.

P. Good use of colour on the backgrounds.

Staying Power 68%
P. 16 levels of increasing difficulty.

Overall 74%
For the price, it's well worth considering.
