CommentsEdit

Tintin on the Moon - 84% - Atari ST

A graphical masterpiece and a brilliant conversion to boot.

Tinton on the Moon - 85% - Amiga

Tintin on the Moon captures the atmosphere and humour of Herge's original brilliantly. From paper to pixel, Tintin has made a perfect transition.

Continental Circus - 90% - Amiga

First class race 'em up, with fluid track and ultra-swift gameplay. More addictive than tortilla chips in chille sauce (but easier on your colon).

Continental Circus - 88% - Atari ST

A fast and furious extremely good conversion of the original coin-op. If you like your racing games fast and addictive then you'll love this.

Steel - 73% - Atari ST

Nicely coloured and well animated throughout, but what Steel actually boils down to is a run of the mill arcade adventure.

Steel - 75% - Amiga

Well programmed, well drawn, well presented arcade adventure which unfortunately lacks that certain endearing element - challenge.

Dynamite Dux - 72% - Atari ST

Dynamite Dux is a cutesy pseudo 3-D Scrolling cartoony beat 'em up really. But it's all a bit too sedate and samey to really grab everyone by the, erm. 'thingies'.

Dynamite Dux - 71% - Amiga

A pretty, cute little cartoon beat 'em up that looks great for the first half hour, but is almost totally free of playability.

Gunhed - 91% - PC Engine

A definite must for the shoot 'em up addict.

Vigilante - 84% - Sega Master System

Plenty of action, plenty of screens, plenty to do!

Oil Imperium - 79% - Atari ST

Drilling for oil may sound boring (geddit?) and probably is, but this provides hours of fun. And I didn't mentio Red Adair once! (Oops...)

Oil Imperium - 84% - Amiga

An unusual but addictive arcade strategy game. Now there's a new game category.

Strider - 84% - Atari ST

Super smashing lovely arcade conversion - faster than the Amiga but shares the same faults, i.e. a bit short and easy.

Strider - 81% - Amiga

Excellent coin-op conversion, and an addictive computer game in its own right.
