Arcadia 2001TeleMatch (Sep, 1983)
Die Grafik, sonst gestochen scharf auf dem Schirm, wirkte bei der TestCassette sehr verschwommen. Das Spieltempo ist schnell, und somit gehört Pleiades in die Reihe der „Fast action games“. Zu wünschen übrig läßt lediglich der Sound, der aber bei den Vorbildern auch nicht besser ist.

Pleiades isn’t the greatest game in the world and certainly doesn’t come close to the majesty that is Phoenix, but it is a good little omnibus game. UA Limited only developed a handful of games and to the best of my knowledge never released any of them. However, they did a very good job with Pleiades, perhaps knowing how important it was to get their only medium-profile arcade adaptation right.

Pleiades is still worthwhile to play, thanks to its fast action and sheer variety. I also appreciate the fact that it keeps the high score displayed on the screen at all times. Note: Despite what the manual says, set the left difficulty switch to B for a normal game, and A to practice.

The sleeper sequel to Phoenix, Pleiads is a shooter in which players maneuver an upward-firing ship horizontally along the bottom of the screen, blasting away at scrolling waves of swooping, bird-like creatures. Sporting unique and colorful graphics, the game is divided into four distinct sectors, the first of which involves protecting radar dishes, fuel tanks and unmanned ships while shooting Martians.

Pleiades feels like four mediocre ingredients rolled up into one unappetizing electronic burrito.
