Review of 'Batty'

Rating:4 User: Alessandro Grussu

This bat'n'ball game where you have to tear down "walls" of colored bricks seems to be held in a quite high esteem by WOS visitors. Too much high in my opinion.

I believe it to be slightly overrated - while the graphics and movement are well made and give a convincing impression to the player, the screens do not tend to be as much varied as in, say, the two Arkanoids or Krakout. And there are only 15 of them.

The games attempts to compensate for this by making some of the screens extremely difficult to negotiate. Not a great choice of game design in my opinion.

In a nutshell, it's good - I rated it 8 on the WOS archive - but not as good as other similar titles. It should however be said that Batty is overall better than the average £ 2.99 title.
