Chris Bourne

Long ago in a galaxy far away, there was a Planet called Zero. The population were a peace loving race who used plutonium to heat their frozen world. But the evil Destrovians were attracted to Zero by its rich plutonium deposits, and began plundering the planet. Time to send for... The Gunrunner.

Produced by Christian Urquhart and Mike Smith you'd expect something pretty darn good, but apart from some nifty background graphics this is a dull and disappointing game. Your character, who looks and acts as if in a deep-sea diver's suit, must simply run to the right and shoot all in his path. Gunrunner is a mediocre shoot- 'em-up which may provide a couple of hours entertainment, but will soon end up gathering dust on the software shell.
