The Master has been a bit of a naughty boy, so two of his holographic fighters have appeared from their chamber and set out to close down his system. What follows is screens and screens of strategic killing, using Hammerfist to dole out lethal power punches and his female counterpart to leap and somersault around the various levels.

We looked at Hammerfist last month, and now we've got out mitts on the Spectrum and CPC versions which are actually very credible conversions. The graphics are sharp (more so on the monochrome Speccy game) and all the gameplay found on the other versions exists in these two.

A great start for a fledgling company.


Monochrome graphics, but that doesn't harm the overall game which stands out as one of the better arcade adventures doing the rounds of late.


Practically the same game as that on the C64, with colourful graphics and well-hard gameplay.
