Roger: Johnny Alpha is a 'Search And Destroy' agent (a mutant bounty hunter of the future) who first appeared in yer actual 2000AD comic and he may well have been the star of many ripping yarns in those smudged and inky pages. His dubut, however, as Sinclair superheroette is somewhat more than underwhelming. It's desperate! It's a dog's life!!

You can poodle the Strontium woofer through a generally doggy selection of extraterrestial kennels, seeking 'vicious murderers' who need to be put permanently too sleep, along with the 'Evil Dictators' who apparently control this contest of yapping yawns. Watch out for the 'Steel Kriegs' too!

Owing to a blatant programming oversight, Strontium Dog fails to cross his back legs in frustration and agony at the complete absence of life-relieving lamposts unfolds screen by screen. Maybe they were just hard to find in two dimensions? 2/5 MISS

Ross: Here we have another complex maze of rooms within which you wander aimlessly! Occasionally, you come across a 'nasty' to blast, but otherwise there's very little to do. Tedious stuff. 1/5 MISS

Dave: 'The Killing' is an apt name for this game - while playing it, I nearly died of boredom! Games seem to be getting bigger and bigger, but with less and less content! 1/5 MISS
