Alien Syndrome (CPC), what a load of WACK!

<< < (2/2)

Axelay:

Having a quick go of this, I don't really understand why anyone would be leaping to the defence of this 'game', it plays appallingly.  It has a terrible frame rate at 5-7 fps with frequent brief 'pauses' while scrolling, what appears to be wildly inconsistent collision detection, a tiny play area with scrolling still only activating as you approach an edge, what in my view are bland graphics with a really poor player sprite, and then there's a couple of bugs in there as well.  It's everything you could hope for from an exceptionally poor arcade conversion on the CPC.

Gryzor:
I'm getting the sense that Axelay didn't like this game

Axelay:
 :laugh:  It's nothing to how I'd feel about the game if I'd actually bought it, especially as I tried to buy games on disk as much as possible so it would probably have been $Au40-45.

Gryzor:
Oh that note, I must have been a lucky son since I don't remember buying any originals that I didn't like. Or maybe I convinced myself to like them😀
