Winged Warlords
By Superior
BBC Model B

Published in Home Computing Weekly #90

In this latest release from Superior we find ourselves battling the enemy on the back of an ostrich. This may sound quite reasonable, however I feel that the author overlooked one tiny little fact - ostriches don't fly! This doesn't really take away from the enjoyment of the game. You fly around the screen attempting to knock the enemies from their mounts.

This is a one or two player game and you have to attack the enemy from above. The highest lance wins. Once one of the enemies is knocked down it turns into an egg. If you fail to crush this, it turns back into a bird.

On playing the game I have noticed one or two small bugs. For example, when you have killed all of the enemy the words WAVE 2 appear in the middle of the screen. It is possible to land on top of them or bounce off their sides. These bugs do not really have any great effect.

The graphics are reasonably good and the instructions are quite adequate. A little time is needed to familiarise with the method, however.
