Possibly the most addictive arcade game released on the Spectrum this year. So simple yet it's absolutely stunning.

ZUB is the sort of game that, on first viewing, looks a pain to play - but not so, in fact quite the opposite. It is a game with plenty of appeal and lastability coupled with great graphics, sound and best of all, a very reasonable price. It can't fail. Need I say more?

Dès le premier contact, ce jeu s'avère excellent au point de vue technique avec son irréprochable présentation et sa non moins bonne bande musicale (cette dernière se révèle particulièrement angoissante). On notera aussi la sophistication des effets spéciaux qui parsèment le programme (matérialisation du vaillant Zub). Le graphisme est lui aussi de haute facture avec une grande richesse de détails et de couleurs. L'animation reproduit avec réalisme les contraintes de l'apesanteur : les bons de Zub sont fabuleux. Ce jeu aux accents de film d'horreur dispose des qualités susceptibles d'en faire un hit.

This is another one of those take it or leave it games, though, even if you are into this sort of vertical problem solving/ladders and ramps game, I have grave doubts as to whether even the dedicated fan of this type of game would shell out three quid for it, perhaps two, but three is a whole new order of magnitude. MAD games used to be reserved for the very best of Mastertronic's products, but after games like this and 180, I don't know what they're doing.

Zub is well presented, graphically sparse, aurally reasonable, and very dull. I quickly became bored as all it involves is jumping up from platform to platform, occasionally shooting security robots - very tedious. I wouldn't recommend Zub, even at this low price.

What all this adds up to is a rather weak and repetitive game which has little or no appeal. Climbing ever upwards is no barrel of laughs. But you should play it just to see the multitude of different aliens. The graphics for these are pretty neat, especially the clockwork fish. Sound is below average though and there is a rather dull piece of music from David Whittaker. I can't really recommend this game. And you will already know that there are lots of better cheapos on the shelves.
