Spielerisch ist Leander auch hier ein Programm mit Hand und Fuß. Riesige Levels, die in alle Richtungen scrollen, allerlei verschiedengestaltige Bösewichter (von der Riesenspinne über Fledermäuse bis zur Monsterpflanze hat sich alles versammelt, was das Spielerleben schwer macht) und viele Schauplätze mit abwechslungsreicher Grafik. Bei Sound und Grafik müssen im Vergleich zum Amiga jedoch deutliche Abstriche gemacht werden, mit der Hardware-Power dieses Computers kann der ST nunmal nicht mithalten.
ST Format (Jul, 1992)
It's hard to see the attraction of most platform games. Most of them are huge mental-mapping exercises with repetitious and unchallenging gameplay. Leander isn't that much different, but at least it has some snazzy graphics. At the superficial level which platform games operate on, this is a definite bonus. The animation is fluid, the backgrounds are moody and the sprites are impressively sized. Leander can't ever hope to compete with the long-term interest of a game like Legend. These sorts of games are fine for those console types who can't live without sight of a hard-to-get bonus for a week, but for the rest of us one platformer every six months is sufficient. For this six months, choose between Leander and Harlequin - they're both as good as each other.
