THE ESSENTIALS

Joysticks: Cursor, Kempston, Sinclair
Graphics: colour is used very liberally, but even the resulting clashes don’t spoil the detailed, fast-moving sprites
Sound: plenty of noisy effects during play
Options: definable keys
General rating: the frenzied action really sets pulses racing — a surprisingly good conversion of the classic coin-op
