CommentsEdit

Star Wars - 89%

A superlative platform game that contains all the thrills, spills and drama of the blockbusting sci-fi film. A must buy!

Blazing Skies - 49%

Could have been a great combat simulation, but unfortunately dreadful controls and some very dull gameplay elements bring it down.

Magical Quest Starring Mickey Mouse, The - 84%

The technical excellence and playability of Mickey Mouse cannot be denied - but the lack of long-term interest also shouldn't be ignored.

B.C. Kid - 79%

Could have been as big a classic as the original if only it had been made tougher. As it stands the lasting appeal is about as dead as a Dodo.

Mario Paint - 65%

A fun and enjoyable paint package that comes with an excellent mouse. The problem is that its novelty wears off fairly quickly and it's very expensive.

Super Kick Off - 73%

A superbly presented, but flawed soccer game which has failed to capture the thrills and spills of its 16-bit forebear.

Wing Commander - 62%

Wing Commander strives to be the first Super NES 'interactive movie' but it ultimately fails because there's too much emphasis on the presentation and not enough on its gameplay.

RodLand - 79%

A competant arcade game which provides plenty of challenge if you enjoy the rather repetitive action.

Gods - 85%

A competent, speedy conversion of a fine computer platform game. Gods is visually appealing and tough to beat.

Felix the Cat - 71%

A highly-polished and very playable game which is spoiled due to a ridiculously low difficulty level - a pity as it could quite easily be the ultimate in NES platformers.

Kirby's Dream Land - 94%

The best platform-based title for the Game Boy. If anyone wants to start up a Kirby fan-club then sign us up as honorary members.
