ZX SpectrumCrash!
There's a touch of The Fourth Protocol to Killed Until Dead - the former provided such armchair excitement for the sleuth, and US Gold's great offering does the same with so much humour as well. The packaging has C64 screen shots, predictably more colourful than the Spectrum's - but even on the Spectrum the graphics are excellent. Along with the clever use of sound, they make Killed Until Dead highly enjoyable. The puzzles and the different playing options add to it addictive qualities, too. Don't miss it.

For a brain-game this is amazingly involving as you try to find where people are meeting, check your files and answer the phone, all before you have the sadistic satisfaction of seeing little old lady Agatha Maypole turn white when you quiz her about the axe handles in her bedroom! Obviously it'll lose its appeal once you've solved all the cases - perhaps US Gold could put out extra data tapes? - but there are so many included that it'll take some time before you can brag, 'Elementary, my dear Spectrum,' with any real sense of conviction. So, there's only one possible solution... it would be a crime not to make Killed Until Dead a megagame!

The joystick is used to make all of the selections and adding to the fun is the humorous cartoon-like animation of the characters, and a wealth of digitised sound effects.

Man merkt Killed until Dead an, daß die Programmierer versucht haben, etwas Neues zu entwickeln, und nicht irgendwo abzukupfern. Das ist ihnen auch voll gelungen. Auch bei Kleinigkeiten hat man sich viel Mühe gegeben und viele witzige Bilder eingebaut. Da gibt es manchmal, wenn man genau hinsieht, einiges zu beobachten: So schwirrt eine Fliege durchs Büro und wird von einer fleischfressenden Pflanze vertilft. Mir gefällt Killed until Dead, denn hier muß man schon mal den Kopf und nicht nur den Joystick benutzen, um ans Ziel zu kommen.
