Wo-oh-oh-oh Sabotaaage. Things are never quite the way they seem... dum de dum de... Yes well, apologies to Stan Ridgeway for that terrible rendition of his tune, and I know I've got the words a bit wrong, but it's a bit more relevent that way. 'Cos just when you think that Sabotage is a pretty good scrolling shooter, it suddenly turns into a naff maze game. Do you like it? Norralot!

You start off with the scenery scrolling smoothly down the screen, and streams of alien cannon fodder flying in front of your guns. Get far enough through the level and a huge ship appears which takes several shots to destroy. Then all of a sudden you're plopped into a maze of blocks and must rush through and collect a piece of blueprint which is under a dustbin lid for some reason. Escape with the blueprint and you can enter the next level.

As scrolling shoot 'em ups go, Sabotage isn't bad, but I can think of many better games, even at this price.
