ST Crystal Castles is as addictive as ever and shouldn't be missed by any self-respecting ST arcade freak.
Generally, this Andromeda conversion is very close to the look of the original arcade game. At first control is a little difficult - diagonals always put joysticks to the test - but there's a mouse option and a good two-player mode as well. Though gameplay is obviously dated now, a lot of work has been put into it making it much more enjoyable than more recent versions of this idea such as Spidertronic
. Great fun.
Although this conversion is a little rough around the edges, it has all the features and gameplay of the original, and is therefore highly enjoyable. Whether or not it's worth £15 entirely depends on how much you liked the arcade game.
With its main character being a cute little teddybear, you might think that Crystal Castles would be a hit with the kids, but of little appeal to anyone else. But, on the contrary, the gameplay is taxing enough to keep even the most zealous game player amused. Graphically, Crystal Castles is perhaps the most attractive game in this series. Combine this with the addictive qualities of multi-level arcade entertainment, and Crystal Castles is a cute game in every respect.
