Rockman... Roc... roc.. ro.ro.ro.. rockman! Yes, believe it or not, this is what your Spectrum will scream.

Were it not for the wonderful digitised speech, this game would maybe be pretty average but, as it is, it isn't. You are Rockman, stuck in a vaguely Wally-style world rescuing the Holy Grail from the caves of Sabhatez. Collect keys, hearts and scrolls to get through. Keys to open doors, scrolls to get past guards and hearts keep you alive. Also 12 cups have to be found to piece together a shield.

Rockman is quite taxing to play - just about worth buying at the price for the game alone - but it's the sound that really brings the game out. Along with the digitised speech at the start, there is a good title tune and some terrific spot effects during the game.

Attractive arcade adventure with sound effects that have to be heard to be believed.
