ASM (Aktueller Software Markt)
ORDYNE besitzt ein gut durchgestyltes Gameplay, schöne Comic-Grafiken, guten Sound und einen vernünftigen Schwierigkeitsgrad. Ist das Spiel damit ein Hit? Leider nein, aber es ist knapp dran vorbeigeschrammt - schade.
Power Play
Ordyne ist ein technisch toller Action-Eintopf mit schmackvollen Zutaten - nur an der Gewürzmischung hapert’s etwas. Schmucke Grafik, tolles Scrolling und niedliche bis fetzige Musik sind zwar vorhanden, und Ordyne spielt sich entsprechend gut, aber der letzte Pfiff fehlt: meistens derselbe Levelaufbau mit dem obligatorischen Endgegner ohne große Überraschungen.
This little-known arcade game features some great graphics and animation. The cartoon style of the characters and background make this game very enjoyable to play. Don't miss the chance to add this game to your collection. [rank in issue #5]
The Video Game Critic
The ability to buy and experiment with various weapons is easily the highlight of the game. The action moves at a leisurely pace, and is definitely on the easy side. Enemy projectiles move slowly and are shaped like large, orange circles. After breezing through the initial "airship" stage, and then through caverns filled with floating orange donuts, the challenge finally kicks in with a treacherous underwater stage. My friends weren't particularly impressed, but this likeable shooter is a natural for younger gamers.
Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM)
Ordyne isn't a bad game at all. There's just not enough game there to warrant the four-meg investment. The cartoon settings also detract from the main shoot-'em-up action. Instead of non-stop blasting, you spend more time flying from point to point. Colorful, but not a lot of fun.
