Movie Premiere

A mixed bag of bananas from the Walsall dudes, the best of the lot is the chart-topper Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles, and as we all know even that isn't exactly the most inspiring game in computing history.

It's a platform beat-'em-up featuring those four Pizza-guzzling dudes that everyone's forgotten about. [What pizza-guzzling dudes? I don't remember any pizza-guzzling dudes - Ed]

The other games are pretty mediocre. Days Of Thunder is a dull racing game based on a dull film with Tom Cruise in it. It's an American NASCAR thingy, and it's pretty slow.

Gremlins 2 is a platform/arcade adventure sort of thing, and it's difficult. Too difficult really. And a bit repetitive in the gameplay department to boot. Back To The Future II is the real turkey, though. The graphics are naff black and white Spectrum style, the title tune is irritating, the stages are too long, and you will get bored very, very quickly indeed.

There are skateboard riding, puzzle and beat-'em-up stages. Full marks for variety - minus a hundred for the actual game.


TMHT 65%
Back To The Future II 39%
