THE AGE OLD game of Star Trek has been resurrected to bring to your screens New Cylon Attack, from A'N'F Software.

Following the successful BBC version of the game, New Cylon Attack now boasts improved graphics and playability.

The storyline is familiar and brings to mind scenes of a portly Captain Kirk at the helm of the Starship Enterprise. You are pilot on board a supply ship carrying reinforcements to a distant planet in a war-torn galaxy.

The game portrays the sights of your laser gun in the middle of the screen with moving crosshairs. By moving these you are able to pinpoint the Cylons as they fly at the mothership.

As well as the radar scanner there are a few other instruments which need constant monitoring including fuel situation, the state of your lasers and shield strength.

Your tanks may be refuelled during the game, which involves wandering round space looking for the mothership to dock on to. No fun with empty tanks and as often as not your fuel will run out just as she is in sight.

The graphics aren't astounding and the sound fairly average. New Cylon Attack is not the most original game but it is by no means the worst.
