Quattro Fighters

In the air or on foot, it's time to don that uniform and do battle with a myriad of different enemy forces in the latest Codies Quattro compilation.

The best game is SAS Combat Simulator, a kind of Rambo/Mercs style overhead viewed shoot-'em-up. You're a dead hard SAS dude, foolishly taking on the entire enemy army on your tod. Unless you can find a mate, in which case there'll be two of you against the two hundred of them. Turbo Chopper is passable. Just imagine a single-screen Airwolf where the main enemy is yourself (your shots ricochet round the cave till they find you!).

Hmm. MiG 29 Soviet Fighter, on the other hand, is a naff Afterburner style thing with 'budget game' written all over it in indelible ink. Guardian Angel is a kick-'em-up in the Double Dragon vein. Unfortunately, you can only move along one horizontal plane, enemies only appear in gangs of twelve, and the graphics are so naff you haven't got a clue what's going on. Tsch.
