Der Spectrum wurde sicher nicht für flotte Arcade-Spiele gebaut; insofern ist es um so verblüffender, was Zynaps aus der Kiste herausholt: sanftes Scrolling, Sprites en masse und nicht zuletzt viel Spielwitz. Nach der C 64-Version von Nemesis ist Zynaps zur Zeit eines meiner liebsten Ballerspiele. Ich bin gespannt, wie die beiden Umsetzungen gelingen werden.
So, the plot isn't original - you're a lone fighter up against hordes of marauding aliens but it's been nicely put together with clear, finely detailed graphics and smooth, fast animation.
It seems that the first generation of computer programs are making a bit of a comeback, what with the updated versions of Breakout and early shoot 'em up releases around. Perhaps software houses have finally realised that simple playability is as important as sophisticated programming and playability is something Zynaps has got lots of!
