Atari 2600The Atari Times (Feb 16, 2002)
Plaque Attack starts off deceptively easy just a few waves of attackers from the lower and upper regions. But the game becomes devilishly difficult quickly as you are forced to deal with attacks from both regions and even more erratic enemy patterns. It's not uncommon to lose 3 teeth at once in later levels as there are simply too many enemies to contend with. But this is not a frustrating game, thanks to the invulnerable nature of your main character and the generous way the game awards you with extra teeth after every 2,000 points. Give this game a try. You simply can't find this kind of bizarre innovation in gameplay on your PS2 or Nintendo Gamecube!

Plaque Attack looks gorgeous, with programmer Steve Cartwright going out of his way to make sure the foods look like what they’re supposed to look like (that might sound silly, but consider Megamania’s version of a hamburger from a couple of years before). The game turns into a very fast shooter with some twists – I really like the fact that you can save a tooth in the middle of an attack by blasting toothpaste at it. Plaque Attack does not have a lot of play depth, but that’s not what it’s there for. If you like fast arcade-style shoot-em-ups with a sense of humour, check it out.
I have to admit that Plaque Attack's storyline is a first in video game scenarios. As imaginative as it is, though, the game, once stripped to its basic elements, is just like any other shoot-em-up. Sure, the prevention of cavities is a noble pursuit, but it's not my idea of fun.

Leider ist das Spiel sehr monoton und bietet außer immer größer und schneller werdenden Feindwellen im weiteren Spielverlauf keinerlei neue Akzente. Dazu kommt eine ganz ordentliche Technik für die Verhältnisse vom 2600er, die Steuerung hingegen "zickt" gern mal etwas rum und verlangt etwas Übung im Umgang. Nichts was man nicht meistern könnte, aber lohnt sich der Aufwand denn überhaupt?

Plaque Attack ist eine Art Megamania im Gaumen. Man sieht also: Es ist gar nicht so schwer, lediglich die Symbole etwas zu verändern, und dennoch die Spannung erhalten zu können.

Like Missile Command, you'll want to concentrate on protecting that last tooth when it's all you have left. Despite its good intentions, Plaque Attack is one of the more forgettable Activision titles for the 2600.
