If you cringe every time all those superlatives are rolled out for each successive 'genuine arcade action, blast-'em-up, sensation' buy Mega and throw away your dictionary.

One of the better shoot 'em ups this year - and one of the most polished programs ever.

The action is addictive, highly polished and very fast... certain to appeal to ardent fans of Crazy Comets.

Technisch ist Mega Apocalypse eines der besten C 64-Spiele aller Zeiten. Allein der Wahnsinns-Sound ist fast schon Grund genug, sich das Programm zu kaufen. Selbst Baller-Profis werden ins Schwitzen kommen, wenn die zahlreichen superschnellen Angreifer anrücken. Sonderlich intelligent ist Mega Apocalypse ja nicht gerade, sorgt aber für furiosen Action-Spaß.

What you have here is a shoot 'em up for the professional marksman. It lacks the sophistication of, say, a Zynaps or a Delta - but for sheer frenetic blasting it hits the spot.

Was kann man zu einem Spiel sagen, das es schon seit drei Jahren gibt und das jetzt unter dem Titel MEGA APOCALYPSE wieder auftaucht? Nun, eigentlich nicht viel; dafür aber muß man einen typischen Vertreter der Gattung „Shoot 'em up“ lobend erwähnen!

First impressions - that this one is a dud - are misleading: it grows on you as time goes by. I found myself getting quite into it after about half an hour, even though my score went down the more games I played. But it doesn't have the grabbability, so, normally, I would predict a reasonable but not astounding future for this one. But it is a conversion of what is apparently an immensely popular game for the CBM64, and I have a suspicion a lot of people are going to ignore rather bland graphics and somewhat turgid gameplay, and just buy it so they can see what their mates with Commies have been wittering about.

Mega-Apocalypse is yet another example of the well-worn truism that Commodore 64 shoot-'em-ups rarely convert well to the Spectrum. The Commodore version included a stunning star field, speech and a two-player option - none of these appear on the Spectrum game. [...] Difficulty and repetitive Mega-Apocalypse's magic has largely been lost in the conversion.
