ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment) (Jul, 1988)
That intrepid clone-hunter Captain Blood takes to the space lanes once more, this time in CGA-only cyan and magenta. Don't let that put you off too much mind you, because those skillful French artists have done themselves proud with these four-colour masterpieces. The action's still as weird and wonderful as ever, with a marvellously animated cast of aliens and an impressive vocabulary of conversational icons. Fun stuff, if not necessarily a terrific one for lasting interest.
The Games Machine (UK) (Dec, 1988)
Lacking audible speech and featuring only a droning Jarre theme, sound is standard for the PC - this version relies on the interesting and original gameplay.
