Review (Your Commodore, July 1986)
Space Pilot style games have been with us for many years but this is the first that I have seen for the C-16.
The game is one of survival as you roam the galaxy facing the attacks of innumerable alien craft. Flying singly or in formation these demons are armed with heat-seeking missiles which will attemp to snuggle up close to your ship, vapourising you as they do so.
The background of stars scroll with a beautiful 3D effect in every conceivable direction but this is where the price of sophistication must be paid. All this activity results in a deadening effect on the spaceship's movement lessening the exitement which the gameply has to offer.
It is also noticable that the complexity of the angled scroll is slower than the simpler vertical or horizontal scroll but I will accept this as a game 'feature'.
I do feel that the game is playable and certainly stunning. Each of the four waves of aliens are armed with missiles which behave in their own characteristic way.
To use a cliche, this is a flawed masterpeice.

Originality: 3 ; Playability: 2 ; Graphics: 5 ; Value For Money: 3
