Sabre Wulf will get even an expert game-player engrossed for many hours. I'll even stick my neck out and say it's more fun than Atic Atac

[Crash back] Sabre Wulf is still one of the best games around. It has very good graphics and is still as playable and addictive as anything else on the market at the moment, I don't think it looks at all dated.

But it's the graphics which make up the playing screen that really make the game worth every penny. The detail the animals themselves and in their movement continue to make Ultimate number one among the Spectrum software houses.

Fazit: Wer ein Spiel sucht, an dem er lange Zeit seine Freude hat, der muß Sabre-Wulf unbedingt besitzen - das Geld ist garantiert nicht zum Fenster herausgeworfen!

Aussi fort qu'« Atic Atac » avec lequel il offre de nombreuses similitudes.

For a title with precious little back story (mysterious verse aside), it's easy to dive in and become immersed in the claustrophobic atmosphere and wildlife-murdering hijinks. This combination of creative depth and straightforward play would continue in Sabreman's later adventures, and helped to establish his first outing as a much-beloved Spectrum title.

Who says the BBC only has a small memory? This faithful conversion of the Spectrum classic not only succeeds in the squeezing in all 256 screens, it's also if anything prettier to look at than the original. But strangely enough, despite the quality of the conversion, I didn't find the game half so enjoyable second time round.

Having thrilled gamers with the dusty attics and caverns of Atic Atac, Ultimate has transported you to steaming jungles in its latest Arcade-Adventure, Sabre Wulf. The concept is similar to the earlier Atic Atac. You must seek four parts of a hidden amulet to escape from the jungle maze; on the way you must battle a dazzling variety of foes, some weak and others seemingly invincible. There are numerous treasures to inflate your score, some of which may prove of use in the game.

An enjoyable arcade adventure - though not really in the super game class.

Και καταλήγουμε στο αναπόφευκτο ερώτημα: Πως μας φάνηκε το Sabre Wulf; Τα graphics του παιχνιδιού είναι χωρίς καμία αμφιβολία εξαιρετικά, τόσο τα σταθερά (βουνά, δέντρα, κλπ.) όσο και τα κινούμενα (εξερευνητής, άγρια ζώα). Το σημείο στο οποίο κολλήσαμε, για ακόμα μια φορά, είναι η υπόθεση του παιχνιδιού.

The game is fairly ordinary but fast maze program and only perseverance will enable you to win unless frustration sets in.

The graphics on this game are very disappointing with really flickery sprites and no improvements on the original Spectrum graphics. The game itself isn't too much fun to play either - most of the screens all look the same, and once solved (rather easy), there's no real compulsion to go back to it.

Resumiento, se puede decir de Sabre Wulf que es un juego muy bueno, con excelentes gráficos, una respuesta de las teclas muy aceptable y, en definitiva, un programa para disfrutarlo.

In my opinion this is "state of the art" Spectrum software. It's basically a jungle version of Atic Atac but much more involved (and better too).
 
ZX SpectrumHappy Computer (Oct, 1984)
Fazit: Das schönste Actionspiel, das ich derzeit kenne. Nichts für echte Abenteuerfreaks, für reaktionsschnelle Spürnasen aber eine mehrwöchige Riesengaudi. Verglichen mit den galaktischen Schieß- ihn-ab-Spielen ist die Handlung gerade noch erträglich aggressiv — allerdings alles andere als tierlieb. Der englische Verkäufer brachte es auf die knappste Formel: „Frustrating fun“.
