It's a good blast, but not quite the advance that it could have been - especially considering the amount of time that's elapsed since the original's release.
Amiga Format (Jul, 1991)
It may not be exactly state-of-the-art Amiga programming, but the pure, simplistic enjoyment makes the game great fun. Amiga Encounter brings a classic video game feel to players who would otherwise miss out. If you're a slightly older gameplayer that remembers shoving piles of money into Battlezone arcade machines, then treat yourself to a bit of nostalgia. If, on the other hand, you don't remember that far back, Amiga Encounter may give you a quick lesson in computer-game history, not to mention a great deal of fun!
Amiga Power (Jun, 1991)
Simple but effective abstract 3D shoot-'em-up - possibly a tad overpriced, but bound to prove absorbing fun for adrenalin freaks.
Power Play (Jun, 1991)
Die neue Amiga-Umsetzung gleicht dem Original fast aufs Pixel genau. Das gute Spielgefühl blieb erhalten, Grafik und Sound sind nach heutigen Maßstäben cdürftig.
Amiga Action (Jul, 1991)
Hardly any updating has been done to the game, and although it's quite nice to hear the music the way it was on the C64, it's not that nice! The game is far too repetitive and is not good enough to stand up to today's shoot-'em-ups. OK if you like to rake up the past, but that's about it.
NOVAGEN hat sich wirklich Mühe gegeben, Encounter auf dem Amiga ebenfalls glänzend aussehen zu lassen. Das Scrolling ist butterweich, der Hintergrund teilweise animiert und die Asteroiden der Zwischensequenz kommen sehr plastisch. Lediglich der Sound entspricht nicht dem 16bit-Standard, er klingt nicht wesentlich besser als auf dem 64er.
Amiga Joker (Aug, 1991)
Das ist ja alles recht lustig, aber man merkt halt doch, daß es hier nur um die Neuauflage eines uralten Games handelt – die Grafik wirkt angestaubt, ebenso die spärlichen Soundeffekte oder die Düdelmusik. Trotzdem kehrt man immer wieder gerne auf ein schnelles Adrenalinstößchen zurück...
CU Amiga (Jun, 1991)
The graphics, while not pushing back any barriers, are smoothly updated and the enemy ships are fast and deadly. The trouble is that there just isn't enough to do, and when you consider that Novagen are asking twenty-odd quid for it, I don't think that pure nostalgia offers enough for your money.
Amiga Power (Jul, 1991)
Good old-fashioned zooming' n' blasting fun, but it really should have been a budget game.
