CommentsEdit

Dropzone - 87%

A pure and uncompromising old fashioned arcade blaster which is heavy on the reflexes and light on the brain. Not a game for everyone, but shoot 'em up addicts will absolutely love it.

Incredible Crash Dummies, The - 86%

A playable and varied game slightly let down by its ease and length, but well worth buying nonetheless.

Chuck Rock - 89%

A lush, fun and varied platform game, whose zany humour raises it out of the platform game morass. An excellent conversion.

Blues Brothers, The - 47%

Very poor and sadly disappointing waste of a valuable film license. A serious contender for the Roger Irrelevant award of the decade.

Desert Strike - 83%

A sturdy conversion, of a game past its technical peak, but still featuring plenty to do. If you were waiting for this to arrive, buy it without hesitation.

David Crane's Excellent Tennis - 91%

A great, if not quite the greatest, tennis game. Not only technically interesting, but great to play, too.

Defenders of Dynatron City - 36%

A very disappointing release from a company that should know better. Avoid at all costs.

Bucky O'Hare - 72%

A decent enough platformer which suffers from overpredictable and a wee bit easy.

NHLPA Hockey '93 - 84%

A rather fine Ice Hockey simulation and very addictive game.

Alien³ - 90%

A spiffing game, imaginatively designed and well-programmed, which non-adventure fans should still enjoy.

Pushover - 78%

Pushover is a solid puzzle game concept, let down by lacklustre presentation and options, and its failure to offer any real surprises.

Lemmings - 85%

A stable conversion of a classic game. Spoilt by a few defects but worth a look for die-hard Lemming fans anyway.

Lemmings - 88%

Considering the limitations of hand-held machines, this is a cracking conversion of the classic - provided Lemmings is your thing!

F-15 Strike Eagle - 83%

Remarkably a Gameboy flight sim which works. Although dull to look at, there's more than enough depth in F-15 to keep most people happy.

Titus the Fox - 45%

Your typical, average, run-of-the-mill platform game sved from the pits of absolute despair by the two-player option - if you can find anyone lonesome enough to want to play it.

Q*Bert 3 - 70%

A nice rendition of an old arcade favourite, which is let down by the original version's major fault - a lack of lasting appeal.
