I have to admit that Plaque Attack's storyline is a first in video game scenarios. As imaginative as it is, though, the game, once stripped to its basic elements, is just like any other shoot-em-up. Sure, the prevention of cavities is a noble pursuit, but it's not my idea of fun.

Leider ist das Spiel sehr monoton und bietet außer immer größer und schneller werdenden Feindwellen im weiteren Spielverlauf keinerlei neue Akzente. Dazu kommt eine ganz ordentliche Technik für die Verhältnisse vom 2600er, die Steuerung hingegen "zickt" gern mal etwas rum und verlangt etwas Übung im Umgang. Nichts was man nicht meistern könnte, aber lohnt sich der Aufwand denn überhaupt?

Plaque Attack ist eine Art Megamania im Gaumen. Man sieht also: Es ist gar nicht so schwer, lediglich die Symbole etwas zu verändern, und dennoch die Spannung erhalten zu können.

Like Missile Command, you'll want to concentrate on protecting that last tooth when it's all you have left. Despite its good intentions, Plaque Attack is one of the more forgettable Activision titles for the 2600.
