The graphics on the Amiga are identical in definition of the ST original, but use brighter colours, have more enemy approach frames and move faster.
Improved sound effects but everything else is as dull and unexciting as the ST version.
The One (Dec, 1988)
This version looks and plays identically to its Atari counterpart. The sound is comparatively better, but this isn't saying much where the Amiga is concerned. Hellfire Attack remains unimpressive.
Zzap! (Feb, 1989)
Ouf! I feel like I've been rolling around in a wooden barrel – and that's not because I've just had my sixth Double Decker either. I've seen some nasty doses of graphicitis blockius in my time but Hellfire Attack really takes the biscuit. The tops of the trees are just shaved off where they hit the horizon, and streets of terraced houses lurch endlessly across the screen (bit like Maff on a Saturday night). If the graphics don't put you off, the repetitive gameplay definitely will. One long round of samey 3D firing is hardly enough to merit 20 quid.
Power Play (Jan, 1989)
Eins muß man den Programmierern lassen: Hellfire Attack spielt sich wesentlich besser als der große Bruder Afterburner. Aber wer die Tests von Afterburner in dieser Ausgabe gelesen hat, weiß, daß das kein Kunststück ist. Im Vergleich zu anderen Action-Spielen schneidet Hellfire Attack nämlich recht langweilig ab. Und auch technisch könnte man sich Schöneres vorstellen: Der seltsame 3D-Effekt kann nicht überzeugen, und der Sound ist auch keine Meisterleistung.
