Put together by John ‘Grandad’ Gibson, Stonkers was a war strategy game without all the finicky scenario setups that ate up the gameplay of many other tactic based games; it got right down to the good stuff. It appealed to veterans of the strategy genre, while the intense, non-stop action of the battles brings the game close to being an action title, making it equally accessible to fight junkies like us.

Ce jeu offre une excellente simulation de guerre et de nombreux essais seront nécessaires avant de parvenir à une stratégie gagnante, même au niveau le plus facile.

'The graphics and overall presentation are excellent. I like the ticker tape which offers you the selection menu for keyboard, Joysticks and skill levels. I was surprised by the speed at which Stonkers moves once all the various units are being deployed. It gets to the point where you barely have 'any time left to think, and you're punching keys all the while. There are 2 skill levels, the harder only allows you to see an enemy unit if one of your own units Is in the same vicinity, and this certainly stretches the tactical abilities to the limit. An excellent game.'

However, if you are fed up with zapping everything in sight from Space Invaders to Mutant Telephones and man eating toilets then this will be a good value.

Πολλοί λένε ότi το Stonkers είναι από τα καλύτερα παιχνίδια στρατηγικής για τον Spectrum. Αυτό μπορεί να είναι αλήθεια, αλλά δεν σημαίνει οτί δεν μπορούμε να ελπίζουμε και σε κάτι καλύτερο, είναι βέβαια κι εκείνος ο αιώνιος περιορισμός στη μνήμη...

pleasant graphics, not a lot of movement. Too little action for arcaders - not enough information for strategists. A bit disappointing, really, from Imagine.
