Cosmic Spacehead séduit par un visuel original et, malgré une relative facilité, on se laisse facilement prendre au jeu.

One of the most impressive elements of this Codemasters outing is the gorgeous graphics that make the whole experience feel like a playable episode of The Jetsons. Despite being 2D, everything feels as lush and detailed as any 3D game you'd care to mention- although some of the graphics were scaled back a bit for the NES and Master System releases, which left the game on those consoles feeling a little flat. Cosmic Spacehead truly is a worthy successor to the Dizzy puzzle game title, introducing a new generation to the joy of endless nights of epic late night puzzle solving sessions.

Most intermediate gamers will spend a lot of time with this one, although the graphics are geared toward young players. Younger players will need a little help to figure out the text and some of the clues. Don't let a little reading deter you, though. Cosmic Spacehead will grow on you like an alien space fungus.

Cosmic Spacehead vom englischen Label Codemasters ist eine gelungene Mischung aus Adventure und Jump‘n‘Run. Dabei sorgen die eingestreuten Rätsel für Abwechslung und dauerhaften Spielspaß. Die Grafik ist bunt, poppig, fast schreiend —ganz im Stile der “Jetsons“. Der Sound könnte durchaus mehr bieten. Das Spiel ist zwar nicht sonderlich schwierig, aber trotzdem echt unterhaltsam.

This plays like the Putt-Putt games for the 3DO. You use a pointer on a screen to move your character. This is a slower paced and will probably be enjoyed more by younger players. The control is sluggish, as well.
