Zero (Dec, 1989)
Overall this is quite an addictive little game. The graphics are all huge and get huger as they scroll towards you at an incredible rate of knots. They are solidly coloured, and the scrolling really does give you the feeling of speed as you bolt along the water. There's plenty going on in the ol'joystick mashing department: dodging bombs as well as launching your own at the myriad of enemies should keep the most eager blaster happy. Another budget winner, and a lesson to all producing crap at 20 quid.
[Budget re-release] Once you succeed in this it's on to the final stage - blowing up the marine equivalent of an alien mother ship. Hit the battleship twenty to thirty times and you are off to the next target. This last stage however, is to difficult that there is more luck than skill involved. On the whole a reasonable challenge, but it won't be long before your eyes are glazing over.
Amiga Joker (Jan, 1990)
Grafik und Sound sind nicht gerade berauschend, aber das kann man für den Preis schließlich kaum verlangen. Was man aber sehr wohl verlangen kann, ist saubere Programmierung: Speedboat Assasins hat jedoch die Eigenheit, alle paar Spiele die feindlichen Sprites durch die Luft fliegen zu lassen! Auch ist die Kollisionsabfrage derart ungenau, daß die vorzügliche Joystick-Steuerung hier mehr Schaden als sonstwas anrichtet. Unter dem Strich bleibt ein knapp durchschnittliches Actiongame, dessen größter Vorzug zu günstige Preis ist.
The Amiga version's playable, so you shouldn't have too much trouble reaching the weak shooting sections.
