Atari ST User (Aug, 1988)
There's not much to choose between these two games as they are so similar. I particularly like the 3D scrolling effect on Thundercats, but the animated graphics of Vixen are slightly smoother and more realistic. On the whole I think I prefer Vixen.

Good graphics, nice sound, but a little mundane in the playability stakes - that's Vixen.

Much has been made of the game's intendedly sexy packaging, but beneath the skimpy leotard, and admittedly very fine graphics on both versions (and good tune on the ST), Vixen is an attractive and involving Thundercats-type program without offering anything significantly new.

ST Action (Aug, 1988)
Can't really say much about this one, except, "nice publicity, shame about the game". Vixen is a good game but there is something lacking... The graphics are quite good, the animation could be a lot smoother and there could be more variation in the game. Apart from that, ... One redeeming feature is the music - very catchy and easy to listen to. However, after all is said and done, this game does not inspire me to play it more than I have to, which is really what a good game should encourage you to do.

Ansonsten ist SHE-FOX aber auf keinen Fall ein Hit, denn dafür ist das Programm technisch zu schwach und bietet auch vom Gameplay her wenig Abwechslung. In der Sparte der Jump-and-Run-Action-Games habe ich schon wesentlich Besseres gesehen. Schade drum, denn nach dem großen PR-Rummel (inklusive gewaltigen Postern und Posen eines wenig bekleideten Models) hatte ich doch mehr von diesem Spiel erwartet. So allerdings behalte ich die Lorbeeren besser für mich, ätsch.

This sideways scrolling whip-em-up's got nothing original to offer and it's doubtful you'll be playing it in a year's time.

Power Play (Jul, 1988)
She-Fox ist eine Variante des „Kung-Fu Master“ “Thundercats“-Themas - und leider keine sonderlich gute. ST-Besitzer sollten sich da lieber an Thundercats halten, das grafisch und spielerisch deutlich besser ist.

Happy Computer (Jul, 1988)
Bei She-Fox hat sich der Hersteller wohl zu sehr auf das Verpackungs-Design (eine leichtgeschürzte, peitschenschwingende Amazone im tropischen Urwald) und weniger auf das Spielprinzip konzentriert. Auf Dauer ist es wenig motivierend, ein paar Dinosaurier oder Flugechsen aufzumischen und über Tümpel zu hüpfen. Darüber hinaus ist She-Fox technisch enttäuschend. Selbst wenn man berücksichtigt, daß horizontales Scrolling auf dem ST nicht einfach zu realisieren ist, macht das Spiel in dieser Hinsicht keine gute Figur. Einigermaßen ordentlich sind nur Titelmusik und Sound-Effekte.
