Commodore 64Zzap! (Aug, 1985)
Thing has so many good things going for it that I find it impossible to fault it in any way. I eagerly await some form of equally enjoyable and absorbing follow-up.
Amstrad CPCAmtix! (May, 1986)
A very original, first rate game.
Commodore 64Computer and Video Games (CVG) (Sep, 1985)
Great graphics, excellent animation and sound together with immense playability combine in what must be one of the top selling 64 games of the summer.
Amstrad CPCAmstrad Action (May, 1986)
Once you have started playing its very hard to stop because Thing has such nice control and his cute persona is what makes the game special. The action is easy to get into but pretty tough to solve so many happy hours will be spent with it.
Commodore 64Your Commodore (Oct, 1985)
Thing on a Spring has some superb graphics and sound. Gremlni's claim that Thing is 'cute and everso lovable' isn't that far from the truth. Rush out and buy it, you'll love it!
Commodore 6464'er (Sep, 1985)
Die schöne Grafik, verbunden mit einem unvergleichlichen Sound, machen aus diesem Spiel ein Erlebnis. Thing on a Spring ist nicht einfach nur ein Hüpfspiel, es ist auch ein logisches Puzzle, das den Spieler zum Denken zwingt.
Amstrad CPCASM (Aktueller Software Markt) (Jun, 1986)
Die Grafiken des Spiels sind erwartungsgemäß gut die Animation ist als überaus gelungen zu bezeichnen. Thing on a Spring ist ein ansprechend präsentiertes Programm und wird den Spieler sicher für einige Zeit vor dem Monitor fesseln.
Commodore 64Your 64 (Sep, 1985)
Although the screens are very basic, the game's great fun. The traumas involved in guiding Thing to the jigsaw pieces are intriguing enough for all but the most rapid of platform gamesters and should bring the game a fervent following of obsessives.
