Spectrum 2.0

Review of 'Nemesis'

Rating:4 User: Alessandro Grussu

Nemesis for the Spectrum is a reasonable conversion of the Konami arcade game, although it does not reach excellency status for a number of reasons.

Graphics are adequate; sound is limited to a grating beeper rendition of the coin-op first level music and a few blips; gameplay suffers from a collision detection which sometimes seems too sensitive, especially considering that enemies' bullets are pretty tiny and hard to avoid. Power-ups are all there, with the partial exception of the Option add-on - you're only allowed to have one, when the original allows for four of them.

A conversion not to be ashamed of, but it could have been better with some more polish.
