Slapshot

When Slapshot was first reviewd in C&VG back in May for the Commodore 64, we complained that you had to have several people to play it.

Why wasn't there a player versus computer option? What was and still is a great sports simulation game had the edge taken off it because of this.

Well, raise three cheers for Anirog. The Amstrad version of Slapshot has a one and two player option.

Slapshot is a good representation of the rough, tough and dangerous world of ice hockey. The idea of course is to score goals.

Each game is divided into three periods of three minutes each. The puck can be passed from player to player in various directions.

Just as in real hockey, you can bodycheck your opponent, but if the tackle is too rough, you may be penalised.

Slapshot's great fun and worthy of a place in Amstrad owners' games collections.
