Skyhawk

Now there are budget games and budget games. Mastertronic have often shown us that cheap does not have to be awful and, working on projected sales, a well-designed budget game could actually make more money than the same game released full price. After all, how much money do you have to spend on software each month?

Sadly, this game does not offer much for your pennies. It's a C16 hit conversion originally written back in 1983 (and looking at it), it offers for gamer excitement the prospect of flying a jet and shooting down enemy planes. Not much detail, not much point.

However, next month, Bug Byte are releasing a couple of games that sound much more exciting - see new section for details. But really, what is the point of confirming in many people's minds that budget equals rubbish?
