Crash! (Apr, 1989)
The best sea-faring game ever — it was well worth waiting for
Sinclair User (Jun, 1989)
What can I say? A masterful piece of programming, one of the finest products I have ever seen on the Spectrum, and a game which is on par with Elite.
The carrier's lasers have been toned down making the game considerably harder, even the gameplay has undergone slight tweaking in places which improves playability and the game's fluid running no end. And there's the time acceleration option which ST and Amiga owners were crying out for. Well defined, neatly shaded solid 3-D objects, faultless presentation and gameplay which betters its 16-bit counterparts makes Carrier Command as much of a breakthrough on the Spectrum as it was on the ST - if no more. Brilliant.
Carrier Command is that rare thing - a game that successfully blends exciting arcade game play with a serious cerebral challenge.
