Amiga Joker
Resümee: Eine gelungene Automatenadaption für mehrere Spieler, für Einzelkämpfer erscheint es mir dagegen hier und da zu wirr.
The Games Machine (UK)
The graphics are colourful and the ingame tunes are jolly, but the Amiga version gives us the impression that the machine hasn't been used to its full potential. Still the game is very playable, and that's what counts at the end of the day.
Multiload before meeting the end-level alien isn't too good an idea. Some moderately impressive mother aliens but the general graphical quality is average. Highly atmospheric tunes throughout. Good two player blasting action although the game isn't overly attractive to the single player. Even with the continue play it's not an easy game. Standard blasting fodder with a few extras to liven it up.
CU Amiga
Unfortunately, the Amiga version is not on a par with its eight bit buddies. Graphics are of course superior, but could have been better. Sound is weak and unmemorable, and gameplay is much slower and simpler. All in all, a fairly standard Amiga shoot ‘em up, disappointing when stood next to the 64 version.
Computer and Video Games (CVG)
Some attractive background graphics, sprites and end-of-level aliens don't compensate much for slow and simple gameplay, just not in the same class as Xenon II
