Crash! (May, 1985)
Spy Hunter is a fairly good arcade to Spectrum conversion. The graphics are fairly good though the sound is used poorly for such a great game. Of all the Zap em up games I’ve ever played Spy Hunter is a firm favourite amongst them. Playability is high because there is such a lot going all the time. I don’t think that this game will keep anyone’s interest for weeks and weeks because it’s a fairly simple game to get into and to play (this is also a point in its favour because it can be played by virtually anyone). I particularly liked the river scenes, they seemed more varied than the ones on the CBM 64 (I know I’m not meant to mention that calculator but I couldn’t resist it considering I prefer the Spectrum version of Spy Hunter). If you want a good shoot em up Spy Hunter is well worth the money. Overall a good game that should keep you all amused for a while.

One of the more successful arcade games of last year looks set to have potential double agents roaring up to their local shops in hot pursuit for a copy of the game. Sega has recently licensed Spy Hunter to US Gold and continues the trend of arcade games crossing the Atlantic as computer software.
Tilt (Sep, 1985)
Ce jeu rapide et difficile au second niveau, est servi par des graphismes de qualité.
Your Spectrum (Jun, 1985)
This one's fast and it's tricky and if you're not careful it'll drive you up the wall. If only it actually got somewhere.
