Spectrum 2.0

Review of 'Salamander'

Rating:3 User: Alessandro Grussu

Conversion of the eponymous Konami coin-op. Not a bad job - much worse conversions were unfortunately made for the Spectrum - but even taking the limitations of our beloved computer into account, it's not a great effort either. Graphics and sound are merely adequate, and some levels have also been skipped. Gameplay only shows a fraction of the smooth, frantic experience of the coin-op.

Not an essential title in the Spectrum's gaming history.
