Atari Gamer - XL-XE Game Review Edition
Rescue On Fractalus is not just a technically impressive game, with its incredible fractal landscape, but also a wonderfully playable game too. Without doubt an essential title for the Atari 8-bit.
Si l'histoire de Rescue On Fractalus ne brille pas par son originalité, sa conception par géométrie fractale est totalement innovante. Les effets de relief en trois dimensions sont à couper le souffle de réalisme. Pas de mystère, ils ont été conçus aux studios Lucas.
Insgesamt betrachtet kann dieses Programm empfohlen werden. Wünschenswert wäre allerdings eine bessere bzw. detailreichere Grafik. Freunde von Flugsimulatoren, die auch ein bißchen Action mögen, sollten sich dieses Spiel ansehen.
