Atari ST User (Aug, 1988)
Both games have enough variety of action- and gameplay to keep you occupied for a fair amount of time, though if I was forced to choose, I would have to say Thundercats has got that little bit extra going for it.
No bad thing, that - the bright, well-drawn graphics are a sure sign of time well spent - but the game's scene has moved on, and if anything the action and animation have lost a certain something. In its simplicity the game's still unquestionably very addictive stuff, but bearing in mind the ST's enormously greater power you might have expected a little more.
This version offers much-improved graphics and slick animation, which slightly slows the pace, but this is compensated for by shorter sword strokes demanding a greater precision in fighting. A tough, well-designed challenge, this is a compelling conversion that is a must for all ST owners, whether they be fans of the BBC series or not.
The Atari Times (Apr 16, 2007)
This game is a fun platformer and even more fun for ThunderCats fans. It may be simplistic but it will certainly bring a few half hours of fun to anyone who picks it up. Fan or not.
ST Action (Aug, 1988)
Thundercats is neither a complete let-down nor a runaway success; its scrolling action together with the mini-mission contained within the game made me feel that it really lacked that special something. Sure enough I enjoyed playing the game, but I may have felt somewhat annoyed had I spent my hard-earned cash on it.
Power Play (Jul, 1988)
Das Scrolling ist für ST-Verhältnisse ausgezeichnet und alle Sprites bewegen sich absolut ruckfrei. Die ST-Version von Thundercats spielt sich ebenso gut wie schwierig.
[Budget re-release] The same game in every department, so the same criticisms apply here.
