MIKE: The first 128 game with any sort of enhancement, Glider Rider is made much more atmospheric by music. Trying to knock out the reactors which power some black-market arms dealers, you use your motorbike - which when zooming down hills and suddenly reversing direction becomes a hang glider, conveniently enough! The graphics are good, despite the awful scrolling and screen flicking, and Glider Rider is fairly playable and addictive.
DOMINIC: The idea behind Glider Rider is very good, but the control method ruins the game. Still, the presentation is great - graphics, sound and options are all top-notch. And then there's that superb David Whittaker 128K soundtrack.
