Now he's back, in Nightshade. Yes, in Nightshade you take the role of the guy with the funny hat who has to clear a town of disease by collecting the antibodies and slinging them at the germs found in various buildings dotted around. The animation is crisp, as with all Ultimate filmation games, with one difference in this town, it scrolls, not flips. The graphics are excellent too, with some funny spots.

All round, a totally sponditious game. Right on Rick (O'Shea).

Overall Summary

Another great Ultimate rerelease from Mastertronic. In its day Ultimate was without rival.
