Renegade III

Thanks to a ridiculous plot, Renny finds himself marooned at the dawn of time. Naturally this makes him a bit peeved, so he's out to bash, slap and poke his way back to the future as quick as he can. The graphics are faultless - probably the best cartoony graphics on the Speccy. On the level Renny faces demented Captain Caveman clones and boxing dinosaurs - so you can probably guess that this isn't quite as mean gritty as the previous games. Not to say it's any easier - if anything, it's the toughest. Luckily you can take a breather by scrambling up the scenery - in fact this is vital to get past tar pits and spike traps (each level is kind of a mini-maze).

Sadly, unlike Target: Renegade, there are no weapons to pick up. There's no two-player option either. But on the plus side it's extremely addictive, with long levels and blimming enormous baddy attacks. 128Kers have the bonus of being able to rock along to the in-game music and avoid the multiload.

Overall, The Final Chapter is a spiffy swansong for the first-flailing vigilante. The only question is, where does he go from here? (Home to bed, I'll be bound!)
