Well, Players have come up with a few strange storylines in their time, but I think Mutant Fortress must take the crown. Catch a load of this...

You are Brad, a post-apocalyptic truck driver who likes nothing more than trundling down the motorway with a Yorkie in one hand and a machine gun in the other! The only thing you cared about in the world was your 18 wheel truck, and now the naughty mutants have gone and stolen it for no apparent reason (ooo, how naughty!). Of course your mission is to now reclaim your 40 foot property and get home before tea time. To get the truck back you must battle your way through zombie infested forests, parched wasteland and Tescos on a Friday night, collecting weapons, ammo, first aid kits and the odd tin of baked beans.

All the Players Premier games have a high quality of graphics and sound, and Mutant Fortress is of course no exception. There is a brill 128K tune, and all the backgrounds, mutants and especially the big truck itself have been excellently drawn. Only one thing lets the game down: it's far too difficult. I like to think that I'm pretty good at this sort of shooty shooty game but I can't even get onto the second section.

Mutant Fortress will provide a challenge to even the best players out there, and at this sort of price you can't go wrong, can you? Players Premier have got themselves another winner.
