Happy Computer
Die getestete MS-DOS-Version ist in technischer Hinsicht äußerst bemerkenswert. Thexder ist nämlich eines der ganz wenigen guten Action-Spiele für PCs, die mit einer CGA-Karte laufen. Auf unserem Schneider-Pe wurden wir von fließender Animation und flottem Scrolling verblüfft. Bei den angekündigten Amiga- und ST-Umsetzungen wird man sicherlich in den Genuß von mehr Farben kommen.

As a PC shooter Thexder may be decent but, when compared to good quality Arcade and console games of similar style, it just doesn't stand up.
