The game starts with a promising David Whittaker title tune. But, sadly, it's downhill from there on. Mainly due to the poor graphics which fail to convey the real Dan Dare character. This is not only ugly, but also affects the playability - the 8-bit's main pulling point (of course!).
The One
Surprisingly for a game based on a comic renowned for its artwork, Dan Dare III falls down on the most obvious essential: graphics.
Power Play
Dan Dare sorgte in den Fünfziger Jahren als Comic-Held für Aufsehen. Ich kann mich des Eindrucks nicht erwehren, daß auch die Computer-Umsetzzung aus dieser glorreichen Epoche stammt. Was uns da als Action-Spiel geboten wird, ist eine müde Nummer. Schon die Komplexität erschöpft sich in vier winzigen Leveln, die kaum diesen Namen verdienen. Dafür aber, daß die Programmierer sich erfrechen, uns viermal den gleichen Endgegner vorzusetzen, sei ihnen der grüne Mekon an den Hals gehetzt. Da Spielspaß erst gar nicht entsteht, sei allen echten Baller-Freaks von diesem Minimal-“Shootem up“ abgeraten.
