At one time computer games were limited to text displays. Then came graphics and later music. Interceptor is going one step further by including speech in its programs.

The game is based upon getting your man through a series of screens and surviving the obstacles blocking your way such as genies, crocodiles and barrels. Players of Krazy Kong should find it exciting. Excellent graphics, although your playing man lacks detail.

Music plays continually through the game. The tune has been implemented well and complements the game. I hope more companies will try to attain the standards of sound achieved in this game.

Before you start one of the screens, a small description of your task is displayed. The computer also tells you this out of the TV speaker. No extra hardware is required; it is all created through good software. Although the voice sounds rather like grandad with a sore throat, it's quite understandable.

The program comes with its own fast-loading system which I didn't find very reliable and sometimes took two or three goes to load the game.
