ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
While the game can be fun for a short while, there's nothing in it to make you come back for more. Disappointingly simple stuff that doesn't have any new features to keep the player interested for very long.
The Games Machine (UK)
There's not an awful lot to comment on, simply because it is all so average and has been seen so many times before. Many features of the original are missing and it doesn't really provide the same exhilaration or excitement of the arcade version. If you enjoy horizontally scrolling shoot 'em ups, try the far superior Delta.
Power Play
Ein paar nette Ideen hat Sidearms schon, um Action-Fans das Ballern zu versüßen. Zwei Spie1er gleichzeitig, freie Wahl zwischen verschiedenen Extras... aber technisch ist die C64-Version wenig befriedigend. Merkwürdig, daß die acht Level nicht auf einmal in den Speicher passen (bei der Nemesis-Umsetzung hat das wunderbar geklappt). Grafik und Sound sind eher kläglich im Vergleich zu vielen furiosen Action-Spielen, mit denen C64-Besitzer zuletzt bedacht wurden. Ein interessantes Spielprinzip wird hier unter Wert verkauft. Da die Grafik gerade bei diesem Genre viel zum Spielspaß beiträgt, ist das Programm unterm Strich etwas enttäuschend.
