Atari ST User (Oct, 1991)
Sound is unashamedly stereophonic, collapse on one side of the screen and the sound will come from the corresponding speaker. The playability is pretty good too. Not too easy to begin with but the 40 odd levels should ensure you get your money's worth, especially if you get the chance to play it with a friend. The only down point is that the gameplay might be considered by some to be a tiny weeny bit repetitive, but with the humour, the speed and the mixture of different creatures you soon forget that all you are really doing is building ladders.
Bewährte Ersatzstücke, neu und liebevoll verpackt: Die Rechnung geht auch auf dem ST auf. Rodland macht süchtig, dürfte aber ein wenig umfangreicher sein. Zu zweit löst man das Spiel in einigen Sitzungen. Saubere Steuerung, hübsche Grafik und flotte Musik machen es dennoch zu einem kleinen Juwel.
Power Play (Dec, 1991)
Die cleveren Programmierer von Storm haben bei der ST-Umsetzung von "Rodland" nichts anbrennen lassen. Der Arcade-Hit wurde detailgenau adaptiert und gehört zu den besten Geschicklichkeitsspielen der letzten Zeit. Die Grafik ist hinreißend putzig und selbst dem Soundchip werden jede Menge nette Melodien entlockt.

Rodland has a ridiculous plot, is odiously cute and plays like a dream. There are two faults that might put you off, though - it's perhaps a little bit tougher than it should be (the first screen is okay but by the time you reach eight or nine you're really struggling) and, after a while, you do tend to lose interest slightly because of a lack of variation in the gameplay. In other words, it's nice in short doses, but don't expect anything too engrossing.
