Summary

Not bad, but no GF2

The Good

The graphics are as good as you can expect. Not as flashy as Roketz, and more colourful and varied than Gravity Force 2, with some creative solutions such as the roadwork on Sitimus. The controls are much better than on games such as Roketz, but not quite as perfect as on GF2, and comparisons are inevitable in this field, with these games being very contemporary, dividing Amiga users into camps a dozen years ago.

The Bad

The game is in Finnish. And that's no problem. It doesn't detract from the game, I just though I had to come up with something bad, but the fact is that Finnish probably is the language in which the term "caveflyer" was first coined. If there is a problem with this game, it is rather that there are only a couple of levels available, and no level editor. Some levels, such as Tropulus and Metarola, are immensely playable, whereas others are more gimmicky and won't have you coming back for more time and again. This can be said of GF2 as well, but that game has hundreds of levels and so many settings, that this is never a problem. With TR, you are left with the few levels the author made for you.

The Bottom Line

Sweden-Finland: 2-1, but the Finns put up a really good fight!
