Mission Mercury
By Virgin Games
Commodore Vic 20

Published in Home Computing Weekly #18

First, the bad news. Mission Mercury turns out to be just a boring old rescue scenario. You have to rescue marooned humans from a planet surface by steering a small shuttle craft through a meteor storm.

The good news is that the game is well-written, with nice smooth multi-colour graphics. The animation is well thought out and effective.

I found it enjoyable to play, if difficult to maintain interest. If Virgin can keep up the quality, but spice their products up with a little more originality, they should do well in their new venture.
