A 'copter and an armoured jeep against the rest of the world is the setting for this brill conversion of the Tecmo coin-op. Neat graphics and a highly addictive nature ensure this is a definite must-buy for the magic budget price.
Sinclair User (Jan, 1992)
The action is fast and furious. In two player mode one person controls the chopper and the other the jeep. In single player mode it plays like lightning. The graphics are well drawn an although the sound isn't Jean Micheal Jarre, the sheer blast 'em up quality of Silkworm makes it well worth a look at.
Obviously lacks some of the visuals and audio wonderments of the 16 bit versions, but the Spectrum version is nonetheless a very playable and addictive blast.
The Spectrum's largely monochrome works well with huge sprites and satisfying explosions, perhaps a touch easier to get through, it's still one of those games to go back to.
