TeleMatch (Mar, 1984)
Sie dürfen sicher sein, daß ich nach Durchspielen von über tausend Spielen vorsichtig mit Urteilen geworden bin. Wirklich begeistert und überzeugt wurde ich von Quest For Tires. Mehr ist dazu nicht zu sagen.
True, every round gets faster, but that's not enough incentive to really make the game addictive. Still, the graphics just about make up for any other shortcomings of Quest for Tires and we can look forward to more B.C. games from Sierra.
One slightly annoying feature of the game is that after a crash, the next turn starts without the player signaling that he is ready. Several times I crashed simply because I did not realize until too late that my turn had begun and my unicycle was off and rolling again. Finally, QFT requires far more timing than strategy and, rather than levels of play, it offers new obstacles to overcome on the way to the rescue. Still, it is fun to play.
Happy Computer (Jun, 1984)
Nach relativ kurzer Zeit bietet dieses Modul allerdings keine echten Überraschungen mehr. Man kennt den Rhythmus der hereinbrechenden Gefahren und überwindet sie daher, trotz des einstellbaren Schwierigkeitsgrad mühelos. „BC's Quest for Tires“ ist also kein Dauerbrenner, aber wegen der schönen Comic-Grafik wird man das Programm öfters wieder hervorholen, um es Freunden zu zeigen, die es noch nicht kennen.
