Martianoids will storm the charts for a number of very good reasons, although technically it's got little to recommend it. First, the plot has several strings to it. Just as you start to get bored with one set of aliens another set joins it and the action zips up. Also, the graphics are cleaner and in better perspective than the other Ultimate titles, a larger variety of curves, flats and textures have been used. Finally, the gameplay just... how can I put it... feels good Ultimate is back in the game!

Martianoids is a good game, highly playable, graphically okay but without the touch of originality which marks it out from all the other Ultimate clones.

Nicely implemented on the CPC (also available on other formats), this will certainly cheer Ultimate supporters (if there are any left) but will not drive anyone into a wild frenzy of excitement.

The nice clear graphics, the length of gameplay and the brain-as-computer idea are the game's strengths. Its weaknesses are a complete lack of thrills in presentation - it's been designed with about as much imagination as a caravan site!

Ultimate have gradually gone down in everyone’s view, and producing a game as boring as this just emphasises the apparent demise of the ‘once mighty’ company. It’s a pity to see such a reputation fade, but it’s their own fault; Martianoids has pretty graphics, but little else, as there isn’t much interest to be found in its walls.

Alles in allem würde ich MARTIANOIDS als "gehobenen Durchschnitt" bezeichnen, nicht schlecht, aber auch nicht dazu angetan, den Spieler in Begeisterung zu versetzen. 35 Mark sind meines Erachtens für das Spiel ein wenig zu viel.
