Crash! (Apr, 1989)
The 1930s were though the world over, but Chicago had it roughest. While the rich ate off gold plates, most people stood in line at the soup kitchens. Enough to drive you to drink you say? Well maybe, but it was Prohibition then and alcohol was banned. Being on the border with Canada, smuggling whisky into Chicago was easy.
Sinclair User (Apr, 1989)
In the absence of Ocean's soon-to-appear conversion of The Untouchables, US Gold, ever keen to jump on any passing bandwagons, have released their latest signing from Spanish Spectrum software supremos, Toposoft.
Not really a bad shoot-em-up, but Chicago 30's is simply lacking in variety. There's little difference in gameplay throughout the four levels, and extended play soon grows tiresome.
Nicht besser sieht es bei der Spectum-Fassung aus, die nicht minder ruckelig geraten ist und darüber hinaus grafisch kaum Details bietet. Auch hier läuft alles viel zu langsam ab und einzig der Sound klingt noch ganz ansprechend.
Like Toposoft's previous Mad Mix, Chicago 30s is a surprisingly simplistic game based on dated ideas. We've seen it many times before and this latest offering adds nothing to the ranks.
