Even taking into account the dodgy presentation here and there, and the feeble sound effects, Karnov is one of the slickest games around at the moment. It costs a bit more than yer average arcade game, but it's worth every rouble, I'd say.

The Games Machine (UK)
Sheer game size demands a multiload that proves annoying as you go back and forth between levels. 48L sound is limited to spot FX, on 128K there are a few jingles. Should prove popular, with stacks of lasting appeal in nine tortuous levels and addictive action.

ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
Graphics really are very impressive indeed; large characters, smooth animation, no colour clash. The sound isn't quite as striking, but what do you expect from the Spectrum? Although it's based on a coin-op, nobody here has ever seen the original machine, so it's hard to comment on the faithfulness of the conversion - but as you'd expect with an arcade game, the Spectrum isn't the best of machines to see it on. A major drawback for many players will be the multi-load cassette; even after reaching level 2 you have to rewind and start back at the beginning. The tedium rapidly turns to raging frustration.
