WEST BANK is one of the most addictive games I've played for a long time. It is a pure test of reaction and recognition with a very nice interlude quick draw shoot 'em out. The ability to choose from three levels to start makes the game more interesting and beginning on level six gets you really glued to the screen as the action becomes fast and furious. After playing the game for a long while the shooting on levels 15 and upwards becomes purely instinctive as you are given next to no time to react. A real test of skill for any would-be gun slinger.

This one you'll all be gunning for - it combines larfs with thrills, quick reactions with' brains.

West Bank ist zweifellos sehr originell, von der Idee allerdings eine lupenreine Kopie des Spielautomaten "Bank Panic". Das fällt aber nicht weiter unangenehm auf, da just dieser Automat bislang nicht offiziell für C64, Schneider CPC und Spectrum umgesetzt wurde. Das Spiel selber ist schlichtweg ein Heidenspaß, obwohl es auf den ersten Blick furchtbar simpel aussieht. Aber vor allem auf höheren Spielstufen muß man sich voll konzentrieren, um nicht zu früh zu schießen oder bei dem sehr spannenden Duell eine Regung des Gegners zu übersehen. Die Grafik ist nicht allzu spektakulär, aber sehr witzig, und eine flotte Wild-West-Melodie untermalt das Geschehen. Die C64-Version kann ich nur wärmstens empfehlen. Selbst zum Vollpreis wäre West Bank ein interessantes Programm.

If you've ever fancied yourself as quick on the draw then Gremlin's new mid-price game might be the one for you. "Soft City smells of gunpowder", says the inlay, but you would be the soft one if you didn't recognize this as a straight copy of the arcade game Bank Raid.

The wide variety of characters makes the game enjoyable rather than just a three key shooting match. I found it best to play with a joystick in one hand — which scrolls new doors onto the screen — and three fingers on the firing keys for each room.

West Bank provides quite a bit of fun at first. The music is very jolly and reaction games such as this tend to be quite compulsive. However my interest soon waned as there is little variation. Graphically, West Bank is very smart, with plenty of colour and neatly presented characters - but as to whether you will still be playing in a fortnight's time . . .
