Are you a rebel without a cause? Well, here's one that'll keep you on a knife edge for months to come. Imagine's Renegade is a new breed of game, a type of gutsy, streetfighting action movie set in the gangland ghettoes in which you play the starring role - a tough martial arts expert called Renegade. Based on the chart topping coin-op by Taito, its pure violence in graphic detail is a must for all closet reprobates.
The things you do for girls... Having arranged to meet Lucy across town, you find yourself getting off a train at a station filled with disreputable types intent on mugging you - or worse.
Crisp, monochrome graphics work well in this well-programmed arcade beat 'em up, which is a snip at its new three pound price tag.
This all-action conversion has identical gameplay to the Amstrad - and that means it's pretty hot stuff. Graphics are very good and the colour is very well used. Keyboard response is a bit on the slow side but poses no major problems. If you liked the look of the Amstrad version then you should be happy with the Spectrum conversion - as long as you can cope with the violence.
Control is simple and effective, you are always given a chance (which probably has more to do with the game's original success than anything else) and the graphics are excellent. Anyone who's played the later games may find it a little easy, but everybody else will have a ball.
The graphics are surprisingly clear and detailed, and move extremely well, enhancing the overall fee - which is what makes Renegade so exciting to play. A worthy addition to your software library.
This is going to sell zillions. Renegade - converted from the coin-up of the same name - is quite possibly the most visually violent computer game I've ever seen.
