Arcade: Shoot-em-up
ZX Spectrum 16K

Chris Bourne


Work Force has produced a less interesting version for the 16K Spectrum.

This version of Scramble uses only the missile stage. That does not detract from its playability and in some ways it is more difficult than its bigger brother. The missiles are certainly larger and the large player ship is an easy target.

An unusual feature is that you can steer the ship diagonally. although if you use those control keys as well as the others you could become confused. The controls are set out on the keyboard as if a joystick was being used. At some stages you could begin to feel like a contortionist grappling at the controls.

Apart from the difficulties with the controls, Scramble is an exciting and addictive game which can be speeded using the thrust control. It is produced by Work Force, 140 Wilsden Avenue, Luton, Beds, and costs £4.95.
