ZX SpectrumCrash! (Jan, 1986)
Odin’s first release, Nodes of Yesod, was quite unexpected and proved to be an excellent game. Could they keep up the standards set by their previous and produce the goods in Robin of the Wood? Thankfully, the answer is yes! Graphically this game is excellent, and the attention to detail is evident throughout. The programmers are obviously perfectionists. The high standard of the graphics has not been at the expense of colour: there are few attribute problems. Some cynics may say that the game looks like a Sabre Wulf variant, but it is much more involved, and character interaction plays an important part in Robin of the Wood. The animation is very well done — just watch Robin use his bow or attack a Norman with his trusty sword! The game makes quite a fun beat em up! Robin of the Wood is definitely another hit from the Odin stable. I can’t wait for The Arc of Yesod.

ZX SpectrumASM (Aktueller Software Markt) (Apr, 1986)
Es ist „viel los im Sherwood Forest“, das ist verwunderlich, bedenkt man, wie viele Spiele dieser Art bereits geschrieben wurden. Erstaunlicherweise mußte ich beim Test feststellen, daß die Spectrum-Version einen Sound besitzt, der als einer der besten auf diesem Rechner anzusehen ist. Die einzelnen Charaktere sind hübsch animiert, die Background-Graphik bei beiden Versionen (C-64 8 Spectrum) hervorragend. Ein Spiel, das wärmstens zu empfehlen ist. „Robin is on its way to the Top!“

Odin are starting to make a big name for themselves, what with their first smash hit, Nodes of Yesod and now this . . . Robin of the Wood is the sort of game that is so very easy to get into and can be played for ages without getting boring. The graphics are well animated and nicely drawn. The backgrounds are also excellent, although they do gel a little muddled with the other graphics at times. As is the case with all games of this type, playing for a long time without getting anywhere leads to boredom. If you do persevere though, you will find that Robin of the Wood is an excellent game and worthy of attention.
