CU Amiga (Dec, 1991)
Exceptional conversion offering hours of fun
Well, it's hats off to the boys at Ocean, this game is a little corker. It retains all the features of the original arcade machine, including the double joystick option. The graphics are fine, with no slow down and the Amiga version retains most of the sampled speech and commentary. Musically, Smash TV is a bit of a dead loss, but who needs tunes when you have this many explosions? All in all, this is a blastfest of incredible proportions. Total carnage...I love it!
Amiga Power (Jan, 1992)
A disappointment, but still a damn good game. Maybe I was expecting too much, I don't know. I've got my problems with it, sure - the changes to the Mutoid Man screen are particularly bad - but despite my complaints, it still manages to be one of the most enjoyable blasts I've seen all year. Good sicko stuff.
Power Play (Mar, 1992)
Die Amiga-Version des Fernsehquizmassakers macht im Vergleich zu den ST- und C-64-Versionen am meisten Spaß. Nichts geändert hat sich an der reizvollen Zwei-Joystick-Steuerung, den popligen Soundeffekten und der fehlenden Hintergrundmusik.
Amiga Joker (Dec, 1991)
Das kommt optisch recht nett rüber und wird auch akustisch ansprechend mit knalligen FX und viel Zuschauergejohle untermalt. Aber steuern läßt sich dieses Chaos leider nicht so toll, weshalb die acht (!) Leben meist schnell verheizt sind. Daher sollten sich nur Experten an dieser Show beteiligen - am besten zu zweit, da sind die Überlebenschancen etwas höher.
