SEIDDAB HUNT CONFUSING

3-D SEIDDAB ATIACK from Hewson Consultants puts you in command of a space-age tank, or "drone", in which you must patrol the city streets, shooting down any Seiddabs - whatever they are - within range.

The screen display offers a 3-D representation of the streets and the view through the drone's windscreen. You can move your sights up and down to frame the enemy and the left and right keys move your vehicle in relation to the outside scene.

If you clear the first screen, by shooting down at least 10 Seiddabs followed by the enemy task force leader, you are transported to the open countryside, where you must face the fresh hazard of enemy bombs.

In spite of a sophisticated concept and some very satisfying explosive effects whenever you make a direct hit, the screen display of 3-D Seiddab Attack is not as clear as it might be, with flickering graphics adding to the confusion.

Improving your skill at scoring in the game is reasonably addictive and it offers the well-tried pleasures of shooting things out of the sky to addicts of that pastime.

3-D Seiddab Attack is produced by Hewson Consultants, 60A St Mary's Street, Wallingford, Oxon OX 10 0EL.
