Just when you complete Thunderstruck, and think you are safely home at last, you find the theme continues in Thunderstruck 2, the latest offering from the highly successful ASL/Peter Scott partnership, which brought you the arcade adventures Last Of The Free and Thunderstruck itself.
Like its predecessor, the theme is a compelling mixture of strategy and logic, with many problems requiring the player not only to collect objects in a certain order, but also to perform some dextrous finger tapping to position himself in the right palce at the right time to use them.
A brief list of some of these objects may give a clue to the complexity and originality of Thunderstruck 2's plot. They include a passcard, keys, blunt block, weight, hammer, drill, pattern, fire extinguisher, spade, program disc, video, peace sign, ID card and food.
Having played both Electron and BBC Micro versions I can report that, as is usually the case with Audiogenic's offerings, there is little to choose between the two.
