Es wird von Mal zu Mal schwieriger, so daß, liebt man Reaktions- und Actionspiele dieser Art, zumindest fortlaufende Spannung gewährleistet ist. Betrachtet man - was man bei Videospielen nur dann tun sollte, wenn man bereit ist, zuzugestehen, daß die Bildschirme etwas völlig anderes zeigen! - die Schachtel-Zeichnung, so lockt ein Steinzeitmensch in seiner Funktion als Jäger. Auf ihn wartet man während des Spiels vergeblich.

Bog-standard slide and shooter that bears a surface similarity to Phoenix and Demon Attack but plays more like a poorly-designed Galaxian with no sense of strategy. Condor Attack goes from mind-numbing boredom to insanity just like that – the birds suddenly start firing to the point where you can hardly avoid it. That would be fine, but it just feels like such a waste of time when so many better examples of this genre (all the games I mentioned above plus many more) are out there. It’s not terrible – just aggressively mediocre.

Condor Attack is an obvious rip-off of Demon Attack (Imagic), which was a blatant rip-off of Phoenix (Atari). But while Demon Attack and Phoenix have a lot to offer, Condor Attack is a piece of crap no matter how you look at it. The gameplay involves shooting at pairs of large, bombing birds. You'll also see a line of small birds across the top of the screen, but although they appear to be well in range, you can't shoot them! Condor Attack is as poorly programmed as it is designed. The birds are dull and blocky, and always look the same. The animation is terribly choppy and the game runs at inconsistent speeds - not a pretty sight. Sometimes you'll shoot one bird and another will inexplicably explode! The erratic graphics are accompanied by some truly obnoxious sound effects. Condor Attack is only challenging with both difficulty switches set to A, which makes your cannon HUGE. Despite its general worthlessness however, Condor's rareness makes it valuable to collectors.
