Calling all prospective Tom Cruises! F1 Tornado takes you on a trip through rugged enemy terrain that you'll never forget! Levels packed with planes, helicopters, boats, tanks and the big end-of-level enemies take a lot of pounding to complete. You start off with nothing but a single-shot machine gun: your finger won't stop pounding the fire button, but a limited supply of extra weapons can be collected to increase your fighting power: reverse fire, missiles, bombs and a speed up are all available.

You can tell at first glance that this is a budget game. The well drawn but simple graphics and unchallenging gameplay certainly don't keep you glued to the screen. The only real difference between levels is the colour! If you want a cheap shoot-'em-up to try out your new joystick on, this is it. If you want something that provides more than half an hour's entertainment, look elsewhere.
