Firebird £7.95cs
ST version reviewed Issue 6 - ACE Rating 813

On the ST this one looked like an old Spectrum arcade adventure with great graphics and nifty animation; given that it lost the graphics and the animation on the way over, this was never going to be a great conversion. It's sluggish, colourless and unoriginal, with a dull game task into the bargain; just steer your jolly little jester round the castles and forests, collecting lamps and zapping nasties. There's some terrific 128K music - really top notch stuff - but the inevitable hits and poor control responses are simply too high a price to pay.
