Crisp, monochrome graphics have a strange appeal, and the limited effects don't harm the tough and demanding gameplay at all.
The Games Machine (UK)
With the comprehensive front end (including a novel Kempston Mouse control method), Ikari Warriors is enjoyable mindless blasting, worthy of any fan of the original.
Just the right balance of playability, difficulty and pure mass destruction has been achieved, and, to use an all-time great reviewing cliche, it'll keep you coming back for more.
Once again, Elite has come up trumps with this one (another cliche to tick off) and when you see the size of the box it's packed in, it could even be considered as good value. Maybe with a few extra touches of originality (difficult in a conversion, I know), Ikari Warriors could have hit the top of the Clapometer, but as it stands, no-one's gonna be disappointed.
