Commodore User (Sep, 1988)
The whole feel of all three sections is wrong and totally fails to convey any sense of action or excitement. The game's single saving grace is the refreshingly camp attitude. A laughably bad (but fun) rendition of 'Colonel Bogie' plays throughout the entire proceedings and there are a couple of nice presentation touches such as the way that the title of the game is spelt out in animated pockmarks left by bullet holes and the hi-score table lists the top 'Prime Movers' (must have been done by a Zodiac Mindwarp fan). This, however, does little to compensate for what is ultimately a terminally boring game.
The One (Oct, 1988)
Army Moves is extremely difficult and frustrating, and it gets to the stage where you feel like throwing your Amiga across the room when you almost reach the end of a level only to die and have to start it again from scratch. Masochists are amply catered for here. The more discerning games players are advised to steer dear.
The Games Machine (UK) (Oct, 1988)
Sound - and suitably militaristic music - adds little to the atmosphere, but uses quite amusing voices on the Amiga. Army Moves is a game in which perseverance gives small rewards.
Zzap! (Nov, 1988)
Your careers officer in school really had a hard time finding you a job. Just saying 'I wanna be an 'ard man!' wasn't exactly helpful. Still, now you're in the Special Operations Corps (SOC), you've been sent on a well dangerous mission to steal information from the enemy.
