Sinclair User (Mar, 1988)
A fun-packed conversion that will keep all Gauntlet fans well entertained. Shame about the graphics though.
The Games Machine (UK) (Aug, 1988)
The Spectrum has minimal sound FX and graphics that are both monochrome and poorly detailed. This, combined with unoriginal and repetitive gameplay, makes Shackled a very unattractive prospect.
Your Sinclair (Apr, 1988)
Disappointing conversion from a passable coin-op game. Similar to Gauntlet and UCM but without the polish or panache of either. One to leave on the shelf.
ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment) (Aug, 1988)
The ungodly and crude and unimaginative in their behaviour so blasting them isn't very satisfying. Despite the appalling presentation, the game idea still has a certain charm, but whether that would be in evidence once you'd actually paid for the game is extremely doubtful. Spectrum version: Not colourful, even slower, and boring.
