Spectrum 2.0

Review of 'Xenon'

Rating:5 User: p13z

The Spectrum version of this iconic vertical scrolling shooter was a top notch conversion, very well made and presented.
The graphics in the play area of screen are monochrome, but very smooth, stylish and clear. Switching between the banking air vehicle, and the rotational movement of the land vehicle to negotiate different situations, stops this feeling as repetitive as some shooters.
Game-play is satisfying, well paced and the difficulty curve works well.
The great audio for the 128k versions is just the icing on the cake.
