Amiga Format (Nov, 1990)
The revamped and updated version retains the compulsive gameplay, but with the addition of improved graphics and sound and more impressive presentation. If you missed it the first time round, then Helter Skelter is definitely worth a slice of any puzzle fan's moolah.
The Games Machine (UK) (Oct, 1988)
The graphics feature a cartoon style humour which makes the game incredibly addictive to play, and the sound is similar to Impact in both spot FX and the occasional short, but sweet jingles, with a digitised voice yelling out to indicate when a letter appears on-screen. Helter Skelter is one of the most fun games of the moment, and at a nice price too.
Génération 4 (Dec, 1988)
Un système de jeu ultra-simple, des tonnes de tableaux, des super sons digitalisés, des codes pour ne pas reprendre au début à chaque tableau et enfin la possibilité de jouer à deux en même temps : ce soft possède tout ce que j'aime trouver dans un jeu. Un seul mot pour le qualifier : parfait.
Zzap! (Nov, 1988)
A playable and enjoyable near-'bugdet' price platformer which should appeal to all fans of cutesy gaming.
Amiga Action (Dec, 1990)
Helter Skelter is a very enjoyable game which offers plenty of excitement and bucketful of playability. You'd be a fool to miss the re-release,
Your Amiga (Oct, 1988)
If you are looking for something that pushes your Amiga to the limits, that extends the final frontier of computer gaming, forget it. If on the other hand you want a simple yet addictive, fun filled game then you're in the right city.
Amiga User International (Sep, 1988)
This is another of those neat, simple games that appeal a lot more to some than others. I have to say that I found it a pleasant but unexciting game. Even so I can see others getting more out of it, so bear it in mind if you like the sound of it.
Commodore User (Oct, 1988)
Hardly the stuff of 16-bit wet dreams, but what IS there is very colourful, extremely smooth, and easy on the ears. A bit steep at fifteen quid, mind you, but Helter Skelter does provide some entertainment - with a large dose of irritation for good measure.
Amiga Power (May, 1991)
Dubious lasting appeal, but a fun little game if you fancy something a bit different.
Amiga Computing (Dec, 1990)
Helter Skelter is a really fun game. It's damned addictive and is certainly something to seek your teeth into.
