Der Grundgedanke, so einfach er — vielleicht wegen der grafisch etwas kühlen Umsetzung wirken mag, ist zu einem nach meiner Auffassung bemerkenswerten Spiel entwickelt worden, das sowohl in den Solitärvarianten als auch in den Versionen für zwei Spieler lange Zeit fesselt. Entsprechendes Interesse an dieser Art natürlich vorausgesetzt. Bliebe einer der Tips des Programmierers Matt Hubbard nachzutragen bzw. zu zitieren: “Beim Spielen wird deutlich, daß die erforderliche Strategie darin liegt, den Dingen sozusagen ‘freien Lauf‘ zu lassen, statt vorauszuplanen.“

This has got to be one of Firebird's best ever (re-)releases at any price - the gameplay is addictive from the start. The combination of time limit, aliens, and increasing complexity make it hard enough to keep you gripped but simple enough to make you think 'why didn't I see that before?'. Get up to about 20,000 points and you'll discover the real meaning of mental strain... If you haven't got it, get it!

Hello there. I've just been playing this fabulous offbeat treat for the senses called Zenji. It's simple in concept, incredibly addictive and hellishly difficult to put down. It's pleasant to the ears and eyes and is brilliantly designed. What is it? Well, it's the best puzzle game ever. Think of it - in billions of years of history there has never been anything better... amazing! Even more amazing is that it costs only two pounds. Buy it and believe it.

You have to connect all the elements together by their paths and when this happens, Zenji occurs. So, that's the theory behind the game and I can say that I enjoyed it immensly.

Zenji is a strange game but one which has become a cult in the United States. It is an Activision import which has been hurriedly translated to the Spectrum.

Quite an intriguing little mind-twister with reasonable graphics and easy-to understand instructions. However, that's not saying it's easy to play. If you like 'thinking' games, then this could be worth a look.
