In Saboteur you must infiltrate the secret base of a group of ruthless rebels, steal a disk containing the names of rebel leaders, prime a bomb to destroy the base and escape by helicopter. The fortress is guarded by Ninjas and dogs, which must be disposed of so that you can continue. Useful things at your disposal are computer terminals, trams and weapons which are scattered around the maze.

Despite looking poor and sounding worse, Saboteur was quite well received, getting a mark of 75% overall. Nowadays, many budget games are of this standard, and this is now lost in the crowd of budget beat-'em-ups, so look around before plumping for it.
