Commodore User (Sep, 1988)
I have got a couple of quibbles with Tracers. The graphics are not that special, and, more seriously, some of the colours are very close which occasionally causes you to hit a deadly obstacle rather than a fuel node. And, frankly, twenty-five quid for a game this simple does seem a bit steep. But, when all is said and done, the joy obtained boxing Mike P in five times a row was better than anything I have experienced on the Amiga for yonks.

A very good example of a Tron style game with its share of strengths and weaknesses.

Still, Tracers is an atmospheric, nicely produced and packaged game: one that pushes foreward no boundaries - especially graphically - but which offers playability in spades. I'll come back to it once in a while, I think, and there are plenty around I can't say that about. It might even inspire a trip down the video shop, just to see if they've got TRON lurking on a back shelf somewhere.
Compute's Amiga Resource (Aug, 1989)
Dressed up with a musical score (which, thankfully, can be toggled off), hazards on the grid, multiple levels, and several variations on the basic game, Tracers is a nice package of arcade thrills. Don't think it's easy. Your wrist and your joystick will be severely tested - as will be your mind if you read the insipid prequel to the documentation.
