Spectrum 2.0

Review of 'Xybots'

Rating:4 User: p13z

Spectrum conversion of the 3d perspective coin-op shooter.
The Spectrum version looks pretty bleak in contrast to the original, with plain monochrome graphics. But it is very playable, especially as a two player game, and the clear graphics do help. Many an hour can be lost running through corridors and blasting at robots.
With a couple of minor tweaks, and a bit more work on the graphics, this could be a perfect 5/5. As it is, your character walks unnervingly like someone shimmying across the dance-floor at the annual speed-walkers club disco.
Always good when in need of a quick two player game.
