Robot Panic

THE FIRST question which enters into the minds of players of Robot Panic will be how could any manufacturer have the audacity to put this game on the relatively-sophisticated computer market and expect it to sell?

The graphics are painfully amateurish and jerky; the characters to be shot are virtually indistinguishable save by name, and the skill levels so lacking in thought as to leave the player bored in a few minutes.

The aim is to move a robot through the cargo hold of a spaceship, shooting down the dangerous creatures in each hold and avoiding the crushing walls. The easy level is ridiculously simple, while the impossible level is just that.

The cassette cover is one of the most professional aspects. Do not be fooled by it - the game is nowhere near acceptable professional quality.

Robot Panic is produced by Soft Mill, 20 Station Road, Haddenham, Ely, Cambs. CB6 3XD.
