[Budget re-release] If you've never played Parasol Stars before (a) why not? and (b) you really ought to. For a very reasonable slice of dosh a game can be yours that brings untold hours (well, three or four) of supreme enjoyment into this sad little game of ours we call Life. (Ahem.)
ST Format
Oh dear. This description doesn't really seem to do the game justice. You see, Parasol Stars is brilliant. It's reminiscent of Bubble Bobble, but fortunately has much more going on. The graphics are well up to Rainbow Islands' standard and there are plenty of catchy Bubble Bobble-ish tunes, too. The beautifully-drawn and animated nasties follow you around smoothly, and there's never a hint of poor collision detection or substandard movement routines. Each screen is packed with - er, things and it looks and feels absolutely great.
ST Action
So what is this! Rainbow Islands 2 or Bubble Bobble 3? I don't care really. We've seen it all before and it still works.

Drei Dinge sind bei der ST-Version anders: Der Sound ist (systembedingt) etwas schwächer, in die einzelnen Levels wird man nicht mehr „getragen“, sondern der Screen wird kurz schwarz, und dann ist man im nächsten Bild. Der dritte Punkt gefiel mir aber ganz und gar nicht: Manche Spielebenen brauchen (auch auf Amiga) mehr Platz, als der Schirm bietet - und auf dem ST sogar soviel, daß nur noch ein Bruchteil dargestellt wenden kann. Weil aber sonst fast alles stimmt, drücke ich nochmal ein Auge zu und vergebe auch hier einen Stern.
