Amstrad owners often have to exhibit almost saint-like patience before hit Spectrum or Commodore games are converted to their machine. Never has this been more true than with Mercenary, which has finally been released for the Amstrad CPC range.

Well, the good news is that it's been worth the wait, because Novagen's latest conversion is as slick a piece of coding as you could hope to see on a machine which has, all too often, played host to second rate or devalued conversions!

Not so here. Amstrad Mercenary features all the neat touches seen in previous versions. Wonder at the smoothly scrolling horizon, gasp at the wire-frame buildings that you can fly straight through, swoon at the sheer size of this evergreen arcade/adventure/flight simulator. But, most of all, go out and buy it!
