Commodore Force (Aug, 1993)
This remarkably popular left to right shooter featured the , then novel, now standard, pairing of helicopter and jeep, alone against the world. Essential for your collection Mrs Robinson.
The saving grace in this month's section, this brill two-player blast was one of the best C64 games going when released, and well worth grabbing now it's out on budget. Brill audio-visuals and topper gameplay make this one to go for NOW!
Commodore Format (Mar, 1992)
The sprites are a mite small, but Silkworm is so smooth and addictive that you can overlook this graphics related miserliness. If you desire a great shoot-em-up and your sensible enough to restrict your spending to under four quid, then Silkworm is the game for you.
A very close conversion of the arcade counterpart containing all the original features such as the goose copter, a dozen levels and the two player jeep/copter mode.
The C64 Silkworm is certainly tough, even seasoned blasters will find the going difficult, but this is a good blast that whilst it suffers slightly from the Commodore's blocky graphics, is very playable.
Power Play (Aug, 1989)
Alle Levels, Gegner und Extras des Originals sind vertreten; auch der Zwei-Spieler-Modus wurde nicht vergessen. Das packende Actionspiel macht Spaß, obwohl der hohe Schwierigkeitsgrad der Commodore-Version eher geübte Action-Veteranen anspricht.
