Spectrum 2.0

Review of 'Androids'

Rating:4 User: Alessandro Grussu

A nice little maze game/shoot-em-up for the 16K Spectrum. Stuck in a wrap-around maze creeping with Androids - which despite their name do not resemble human beings at all - you must find the exit, which is always located in a different place, and proceed to the next maze, which has always the same layout, but is filled with more Androids. You have a five-shot laser gun to defend yourself, and five shields as well, which you can replenish by collecting Gs and Ss tokens scattered on the maze floor.

Fast and furious action make Androids a no-nonsense zapping fest, although the ever-repeating maze limits its lasting power.
