Review of 'Room Ten'

Rating:4 User: Matt_B

Programmed by Chris Newcombe and designed by Pete Cooke this game had a lot to live up to, coming after Cooke's sprawling 3D epic Tau Ceti.

It's basically Pong in 3D, and there lies both its strength and it's weakness. It's a good game because a well made Pong clone is always good fun, and the 3D element gives it a nice twist. However, like Pong, it's a rather limited game which you're probably going to tire of rather quickly. Especially so if you can't find a second player as the computer opponent is rather easily thrashed after a modicum of practice.

This would have made a decent budget title, but released at full price it wasn't terribly good value. The Light Corridor and Ballblazer are a couple of games take the concept a bit further and are worth a look if you like that sort of thing.
