Crash! (Dec, 1991)
If you have any Amiga-owning buddies who think the Spectrum belongs in a museum along with the counting frame and Betamax video recorder, sit them in front of your machine and load up a copy of Ocean's Smash TV. It'll have them crying into their £30-a-throw software collection, wishing they hadn't wasted their money upgrading. Smash TV is quite simply the best game I've ever seen on the Spectrum, and the perfect answer for those who think the Speccy is dying. Two short years ago, I didn't think it possible to use so much colour with so little clash. For my money, the sheer speed and playability of Smash TV make it the best game yet. Ocean have a real winner on their hands.

Thugery performed at an almost professional level! This is the game that the Running Man should have been - brightly detailed, fast yet unjerky graphics and a blisteringly simple yet addictive gameplay.

Smash TV, the coin-op, is notorious blood n' guts attitude to the shoot 'em up theme. This conversion is as good as can be expected and, although slightly frustrating at times, fits the bill very nicely.

Soyons honnête: il ne reste plus grand chose de la version arcade dans cette version qui n’a retenu que l’essentiel: un personnage qui tire sur des adversaires dans des grandes pièces. En-dehors de la curiosité ou de la nostalgie, difficile de trouver une raison valable de s’essayer à ce portage aujourd’hui.
