Amiga Action
Without any doubt, the storyline and the scenario behind Wreckers my way provides plenty of interest. After wading my way through the fairly large manual, I really felt the game might have had plenty of depth and lasting interest. Unfortunately, the gameplay doesn't live up to expectations and is, in fact decidedly simple. Another problem is caused by the very awkward control method. On a brighter note, the graphics and sound help to create a suitable atmosphere, but unfortunately, they fail to rescue the game.

Power Play
"Wreckers" wimmelt nur so von Details und kleinen spielerischen Ideen. Trotzdem krankt das Spiel an der Tatsache, daß viel Kleines nicht immer ein gutes Ganzes abgeben muß. Manche der Zwischensequenzen (Leuchtfeuer einstellen, anfliegende Aliens absaugen) sind auf Dauer eher lästig und mindern den Spielspaß. Tatsächlich macht Wreckers am meisten Spaß, wenn die Aliens erst mal in der Station sind und man das Element "Roboter kommandieren" voll ausschöpfen darf - die trockenen witzigen Kommentare (Ich gaube ich roste, Sir) schaffen Atmosphäre. Die Grafik ist ordentlich gezeichnet und übersichtlich. Animation und Scrolling sind dafür recht ruckhaft, was allerdings nicht zu sehr stört. Die witzigen Soundeffekte passen gut zum Spiel; offensichtlich haben die Programmierer R2D2s Wortschatz aus dem Krieg der Sterne herausdigitalisiert. Wreckers hat ein paar Schwachstellen, darunter die ungenaue Steuerung per Joystick und den für Einsteiger ziemlich harten Schwierigkeitsgrad.

Wreckers is an isometric, fully scrolling shoot 'em up with the player controlling a trio of space cadets. The game's scenario tells of an important orbiting outpost, which is currently under attack from globular aliens. With the rest of the crew out of action, it is up to the player to repel the enemy invasion using whatever means you can find aboard the station.
