[AMSTRAD CPC] Thunder Jaws - Longplay & Review
[AMSTRAD CPC] Thunder Jaws - Longplay & Review
11 March 2012, 3:38 pm

 

Thunderjaws review and longplay / walkthrough for the Amstrad CPC! This is in fact an Atari games arcade coin-op conversion from Domark software, it seems very few saw and played the machine and even fewer knew of this conversion! The original wasn't a very good game at all, mostly being a James Bond themed Rolling Thunder rip-off - but they've done an 'ok' job on the conversion. Like Narc we looked at yesterday (which totally coincidentally turned out to be from the same programmer!) - nice presentation, below par gameplay although this is a little better. Well worth watching for a nice ending sequence though! (c) Atari Games 1990 / Domark 1991 cpc-power.com Arcade, Videogame, Pinball Machine, and Antique Coin-Operated History -- The[/t][/t]

Hey, this looks quite nice. never seen it before! maybe not good enough for a full-price release, but on a budget label it would have been fantastic... Nice tune too, as you mention, and yeah, there's an ending, too!


Also: heh, scrolling and sprite movement are actually better than on the arcade!
