Description

From the famous comic strip comes this multi-load action game. Flash has 3 distinct tasks to face, travelling through a desolate forest in the first, shooting or avoiding minions and avoiding the holes. The top half of the screen displays the action, while the bottom half displays a map.

The Cave of Barin is his target, with the aim of taking on Barin in combat using an array of punches and kicks. After this, Flash mounts a motorcycle and rides towards Ming, with guards to fend off and energy gates to pass through in order to replenish before finally taking Ming out.

Trivia

C64 version

The Commodore 64 version was released in the US under the title Captain Zapp with all the other names, like Ming the Merciless and Prince Barin, being changed. This was probably to avoid paying King Features for the Flash Gordon character names a second time or perhaps Mastertronic only had permission to use the Flash Gordon characters in Europe.
