THE ESSENTIALS

Joysticks: Cursor, Kempston, Sinclair
Graphics: superbly-animated sprites fight it out in an excellently-drawn ‘comic strip’ play area
Sound: a great 48K title tune and some neat, bashing spot effects, but no enhancements on the 128K machines
Options: definable keys. Two scenarios to play
General rating: a finely-honed arcade adventure which is surely the best comic licence ever — you’d be batty to miss it
