Steel

Hot on the heels of their recent Silver Medal success, the authors of the excellent Slayer have come up with Steel. The action takes place in a huge complex of corridors (ideal for mapping) filled with a myriad of nasty robots hovering around VINCent style (you have seen The Black Hole, haven't you?).

You must traverse the corridors moving power units and operating signals via a sub-game rather like the last stage of Phoenix.

The graphics in Steel are excellent, with a whole host of colourful and metallic backdrops. The gameplay is rather strange, though, but it's fast and compelling. I found myself coming back for another thrash every now and then.

Not quite as good as Slayer, but still a good game.
