Your Sinclair

By The Lords
Spectrum 128K

Published in Your Sinclair #81


A three-part demo showing off The Lords' uncontestable sound-chip skills, the music is backed by a couple of funky graphics screens. Nemesis The Warlock (from 2000AD) bounces smoothly up and down the screen, a massive vertical scrolly rolls over a grinning skull, and a wobbly message leaps about over a screen nicked from an old Interceptor title. Impressive stuff, but it doesn't have the silly good-naturedness of The Crazy Demo. Plus, it's 128K only but doesn't seem to like +3's at all. It's good, but it didn't light my fire (as they say). The music's fantabulous though.
