This is one of the most complete and satisfying role-playing graphic games I have yet seen. There is quite simply so much to do, so much to explore and so much to experiment with.

Fairlight beschert ungetrübten Spielgenuß; als Nachfolger von Alien 8 wäre es vielleicht geeigneter gewesen als Ultimate‘s eigenes Programm Nightshade.
Computer Gamer
Superb graphics, realistic animation and fiendish puzzles that can be solved with a joystick all add up to create a superb arcade adventure that is only slightly spoiled by a marked loss of speed when more than one monster appears on the screen.

Ultimately, Fairlight was the game you chose from your collection to show off the abilities of your Spectrum to a visiting Aunt and Uncle. This game was truly a technical marvel that pushed the quality of gaming graphics forward to the next level and provided the player with a rather good adventure game to boot.
