ANYONE who has seen 3D Tunnel will find Vortex for the 16K Spectrum familiar. The story is that you are in a spacecraft caught in the gravity well of a giant neutron.

Your job is to fly out of the vortex white firing at the various space monsters attacking you.

The flashing graphics are striking but a little confusing, making scoring difficult. There is also a long and wordy introduction which provides very little helpful information, but fortunately you can go straight to the game without looking at it.

Vortex is available from J K Greye Enterprises, 16 Park Street, Bath, Avon BA1 2TE. It costs £5.95.
