Bio Challenge is beautifully presented and features a great tutorial demo, which is well worth watching! In fact, the only omission is an level-entry system allowing the early stages to be bypassed on later plays. Once learned, though, the levels are rapidly completed, and there is no strict method for completing each level. A great debut for the Delphine/Palace team: let's hope this is the start of a beautiful relationship!
BIO CHALLENGE darf sich rühmen, eines der wenigen Spiele zu sein, bei denen alles zusammenpaßt. Ein mitreißendes Spielkonzept wurde mit einem technischen Know-How umgesetzt, wie man es bis jetzt selten auf den 16-Bittern sah. Vom Spielablauf her bietet BIO CHALLENGE also neben viel spannender Unterhaltung noch viel für Auge und Ohr und für‘s Geld. Bleibt zu hoffen, daß dieses engagierte Produkt von DELPHIN SOFTWARE Schule macht!
Fabulous music, unusual gameplay and exotic graphics make up for a basic of variation in the gameplay. Addicts of arcade adventures with the accent on tactics rather than the trigger-finger should find this a challenge worth meeting.

Bio Challenge is quite a weird game when you first play it, but you are soon dragged in by the atmospheric presentation and quickly adapt to the strange control method. Even when you think you've got it sussed, the odd alien thingy can stomp on you making you just that little bit more determined to come back and win next time.

If you enjoy really mastering a game, Bio Challenge is probably for you. But for the occasional time and robot wasting session, there are alternatives that won't cause so much angst and cursing. Very good, but very hard.
The One (Jun, 1989)
It's a lovely looking game, and the animation is smooth and tricky. The occasional sprite flicks off for a second, but this happens so rarely it's scarcely worth mentioning. Sonically the game is impressive, with a number of themes playing in the background complemented by full orchestrations. Check it out through a stereo if you get the chance. I don't like to insult Delphine by saying it's a very professional job, but it is. Bio Challenge really wouldn't shame a coin-op.
Bio Challenge's gameplay is a breath of fresh air, both original and fun; 16-bit owners longing for a change can find it here.

Bio Challenge is definitely worth a look. It isn't the most absorbing game you'll have ever played, and there might have been just a little more to do. It's nevertheless an impressive release, and it's quite the cutest post holocaust game I've seen in a long while.
Power Play (Jun, 1989)
Beim ersten Spielen mutet die Steuerung etwas verzwickt an, doch nach einer Weile kann man sich mit dem Spielprinzip anfreunden. Eine sehr hörenswerte Musik sowie gute Grafik und Animation runden das Spiel ab.
