4 game compilation compiled by the magazine Amtix (there were also Crash Smash and Zzap Sizzlers for Spectrum & C64) that received high review scores. Bought this for Monty and Bounder mainly as I have the other 2 on single cassettes....[leave a comment]

Bit of a strange one this, it is a multi directional (flick screen not scrolling) shoot em up. You have to destroy enemies one each planet that are infecting crops orr something like that. It isn't a bad game but not exactly ground breaking....[leave a comment]

on November 17, 2016

This version of the game was given away November 1993 on Amstrad Action's cover tape, high scoring game at the time.

Decent tie in to the movie with key points taken as levels, the runaway carriage, shooting gallery, pie throw scene and the train speed at the end. Very good use of the license and worth getting for the 8 Bit machines....[leave a comment]

Americana re release of the Amstrad version of this game, this is my favourite version over C64 & Spectrum, just nicer richer colours. It is a superb action platform game, so darned addictive you can spend ages trying to master it!...[leave a comment]

Basic little arcade game, you have people that are forever moving forward and you have to bridge the gaps so they don't fall in the water....[leave a comment]

Great sequel to Miner 2049er, more screens, just as fun and addictive. Classic platforming at it's best!...[leave a comment]

Nice conversion of the SEGA arcade game, visuals and sound are good but the controls are a bit funny and take some getting used to. I do still prefer the Master System then Megadrive versions of this game but it is worth owning on the Amstrad....[leave a comment]

I think everyone knows this game, zip around the screen grabbing the bombs before they go off. The Amstrad version plays well and looks pretty nice. Video there is emulated version in HD so visuals aren't quite as crisp...[leave a comment]
