This game has been so extensively advanced previewed, previewed and played prior to release by me that I forgot to review it! Readers of this column in previous months will know how highly I think of this game - much more playable than Stryker's Run, although some may think that the graphics are not quite so technically interesting.

The addition of problem solving to Commander Stryker's mission, as well as four levels of gameplay, do promise a lot more mental thought than the simple timing element of the original game and programmers Edmondson and Chamberlain display the style and verve of their earlier Ravenskull. The usual Superior competition and excellent packaging have not let us down with this game - an essential purchase (even for those who were not fans of Stryker's Run and an almost certain Game of the Month in any month that didn't include Arkanoid among the releases.
