Review of 'Smash TV'

Rating:3 User: Rebelstar Without a Cause

Despite getting rave reviews from the magazines of the time, Smash TV is a very average game. One of the problems is that your character moves in fits and starts meaning you never feel totally in control. The jerky movement extends to the enemy sprites making them hard to avoid. The best option is to stand in one of the corners and fire into the centre of the room. Using this strategy you'll eliminate most of the enemy without having to move.
It's not all bad. It's very colourful and is reasonably fun, just not the masterpiece it was made out to be.
