All in all, Starquake is a superb arcade adventure, which looks like catapulting Mandarin to an enviable position among 16 bit software houses. My only reservation is that it is still in essence a conversion of an 8 bit game. But it is by no means alone in that, and is certainly a very good conversion, with several enhancements over the original.

Starquake will not win any prizes for originality and outstanding graphics, but its game-play is mildly amusing and challenging. Collecting objects is certainly not a new preoccupation in arcade games, but it has been employed to great effect in Starquake. It seems that no matter how spectacular the graphics created on the ST, love them or hate them, multi-level arcade games of this ilk will always have a place in the software market.
