ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
What Eye does do for the first time is bring well though-out, excellently programmed, carefully designed arcade-adventure to the 16bit machines - and with a spot of blasting to boot. There seems no reason why Logotron shouldn't launch a whole range of these - just as Ultimate did.

ST Format
Eye of Horus successfully mixes shoot'em-up arcade-style action with intriguing puzzles and object manipulation to produce an interesting and challenging game. It may not be a major innovation or particularly original, but the element of Egyptian mythology makes it enjoyable enough to keep you battling Set and his minions for a long time.

For hardened arcade addicts looking for a puzzle element to add to mindless blasting, this game should prove an enjoyable challenge.

The One
Much the same as the PC version, though with a little less colour and one or two wooden sprites. The task is slightly easier though, because the mare distinct graphics and smoother scrolling allow for a greater amount of control over Horus.

The Games Machine (UK)
Graphically Eye Of Horus is very good, especially the backgrounds which are filled with very pretty hieroglyphics. Sound is also well represented by an atmospheric Egyptian composition by music maestro David Whittaker. At the end of the day we reckon that Eye Of Horus will appeal to puzzle fans more than we zappers.

ASM (Aktueller Software Markt)
Eye of Horus ist wieder einmal ein Beweis für Logotron's hochwertige Software. Ein ASM-Hit ist (leider) nicht daraus geworden, spielbar erweist sich das Game jedoch allemal. Besonders die hammerharten Gegner lassen nur Profis zum Zuge kommen. Aber ohne Strategie läuft auch wenig, denn nur mit Ballern durchforstet man kein Labyrinth. Alles in allem, durchaus lohnenswert.

Power Play
Leider konnte ich in Eye of Orus nichts Neues entdecken, da hat man wohl auf altbewährte Action-Magerkost zurückgegriffen - das gab es alles schon. Technisch gibt es nichts auszusetzen, die Grafiken sind toll, aber der Rest?
