I thoroughly enjoyed playing the game at Ariolasoft's offices but I did have the advantage of being able to turn off the alien threat. Even so, the game was difficult to complete and with the collision detection turned on again the game is incredible tough. This must rate as one of the best shoot-em-ups of all time. Defender deluxe!

Yet again Tony Crowther and co hit us with another 'Classic' game, or so the inlay card says. Mr Crowther has been author to a fair number of good games, but it seems he may have lot his touch... Gobots is not what I'd call a Crowther classic. It lacks the pulling power, graphical quality and other Crowtherish features which made Suicide Express, Potty Pigeon and Trap such great games.

A game tweaker is supplied so you can adjust the levels, etc, to make life simpler, or harder, for Leader 1. A good 'W.E.M.U.S.I.C.' piece accompanies the game, and plays on the title screen. Even the game loader asks you if you want to load the game by hyper load or not. Like I said, incredibly gimmicky, but like Transformers, a terrible let down, especially for fans of the cartoon.
Happy Computer (1986)
Es ist mal wieder der Fall eines technisch guten Spiels, das aber nur gepflegte Langeweile bietet. Keine Extrawaffen, keine neuen Ideen – nur Bomben einsammeln und damit grüne Bälle am Boden zu zerstören ist auf Dauer doch ein wenig langweilig.
