Having produced some decent cheapo adventures in the past I was expecting something good from Alternative Software's Star Wreck. What a mistake!

For a start it's about as funny as a motorway pile-up. You play captain James T Cake, of the starship Paralysed, your mission to take a cargo of one Trell and a rigellian Slime Beast to the planet Dandrox.

The game itself is let down mainly by its graphics, which are very simple. Pictures made up from lines which don't look like anything in particular can hardly be called state-of-the-art.

Also Alternative Software doesn't seem to know that the Spectrum can produce sound as there is none, apart from the click of the keys.

Reasonable adventure, let down by one-gag humour and poor graphics. Some tricky problems though.

3/10
