Die Grafik dieses Spiels ist für „Spectrum-Verhältnisse“ traumhaft. Die Spielidee ist recht einfach, aber sehr gut in ein rasantes Spielchen umgesetzt worden! Sound ist hier Nebensache. Bravo, Mirrorsoft! Es hat Spaß gemacht!

Action Reflex isn't going to win any awards for the most original game of all time, but it is an addictive and tricky game that needs a combination of arcade reflexes and a little bit of planning and judgement. My only doubt about is that three mazes might not be sufficient to give the game a very long lifespan.

I can't help feeling that Action Reflex has borrowed ideas from other games such as the bouncing action from Cauldron II and the traps from Bounder. It won't set the world alight with it's originality but it will be played.
