The graphics on the Amiga version are absolutely stunning, using the Copper chip to the full - the backgrounds are all made up of separate sprites! The C64 doesn't lose out, either, with loads of craft nipping around the screen like there's no tomorrow! The sound on both games is also outstanding, with tons of loud and raucous explosions - when the going gets tough (which it invariably does), it sounds like a full-scale war! Add to that the automatic difficulty level (which takes into account how you're doing and if one or two players are taking part), and you've got yourself one of the most addictive and playable blasters in ages. Miss this and you'll never forgive yourself!

SWIV's graphics are excellent. The animation is smooth and the backdrops and sprites work well together. Sound is a funky groove thang as well. A juicy soundtrack with stonking explosions and gunfire increase the adrenalin factor no end. Above all it's hugely playable. The single player option is dead spiffy and the two player mode doubly so. A splendid shoot 'em up which no respecting gamester should overlook.

64'er (Jun, 1991)
Die Grafik ist leider ein wenig schwach, denn das Schlachtfeld und die Sprites sind nur mittelmäßig gestaltet. Dies tut aber dem Spiel keinen größeren Abbruch, da man ja eh nur auf feindliche Objekte und Geschosse achtet. Eine feine Ballerei für den, der es mag.

Il y a vraiment de quoi être impressionné par la sorcellerie dont semblaient capable certains développeurs avec une machine comme le C64. SWIV n’est pas seulement un des meilleurs shoot-them-up de la machine, il se permet de rivaliser avec les versions 16 bits grâce à une maniabilité et un équilibrage sans faille. Si vous voulez découvrir à quoi peut ressembler un excellent shoot-them-up sur ordinateur 8 bits, ne cherchez pas plus loin!
