Commodore Computing International Review (August 1986)
Diagon is a very fast and furious arcade-action game, and reminds me a little of Gridrunner from Llamasoft. The blurb on the box tells us that the "Krellis IV and the Di-Planium wars rage on. Control the Diagon network through 10 levels of defense. M-Droids cause havoc. Its death in the fastlane and sounds your Mother will love." Death certainly is in the fast lane, and is very difficult to avoid! Luckily, Bug-Byte have very kindly supplied 5 ships instead of the normal 3, which to a certain extent makes up for the high death rate.
The sound effects are great, somewhat reminiscent of those found on earlier C64 games. The character set has been redesigned into a chunky, rounded font, together with lots of colour.
You control a small ship on a grid, which contains 18 solid obstacles. These can be used to hide behind from enemy fire, and from nasties zipping around the grid. If you get hit, then your ship explodes in a rather pretty, if unimaginative display of multi-coloured streamers. Around the outside of the grid circle four enemy ships, which fire at you through gaps in the outside grid walls.
This game is a definite must for any games player. With its excellent sound effects, fast moving action, and addictive game play, it deserves to be a number one in the charts. One of the best C16 games I have played yet, and likely to remain a favourite of mine for some time to come.
