The Japanese don't take their games software too seriously. Like their films - of the Godzilla ilk - they throw everything in while maintaining a basic scenario. The imagination of the programmers knows no bounds, progress in their games is a must if only to find out what bizarre event takes place on the next screen. Usas is a lovely example of this style, incorporating weird and wonderful monsters with crazy obstacles and obscure weapons, all programmed with polish and finesse. Attention to detail is omnipresent and a fantastic, impelling urge to get to the final battle is instilled by the steady progress one makes with practice - and the enjoyment to be gleaned by making it. It is good to have MSX back in THE GAMES MACHINE office.

Neben der technischen Qualität der Grafiken sticht einem auch der Einfallsreichtum der Entwicklungscrew ins Auge. Zum Sound (gute Musik, und das ohne Zusatzsoundchip!) und passende Effekte kann man eigentlich auch nur dasselbe sagen, so daß als einziger ständiger Mangel wie bei vielen MSX-Programmen das gelegentliche Flackern der Spielfiguren bleibt. Hier möchte ich nun schließen. Mein Schlußwort zu USAS lautet: Es ist ein rundum gelungenes Programm, das ich nur jedem Jump and Run-Freund empfehlen kann!
