Spectrum 2.0

Review of 'Ano Gaia'

Rating:4 User: Raphie

In my first review in yonks, I return with a review on Ano Gaia, a vertically scrolling shoot-em-up which came free in Issue 89 of Your Sinclair magazine.

The game itself is terrific, nicely detailed graphics with lots of colour given the Speccy's limitations. Gameplay's just the same as any ordinary shooter, if it moves, shoot it till its destroyed, but the gameplay is fast and smooth unlike some shoot-em-ups for the Spectrum which can be slow and somewhat unresponsive, oh and monochrome as well, unlike Ano Gaia. The opening music is very well composed, again given Spectrum's limitations and the fact that its a beeper sound rather than the AY sound.

With exceptional gameplay, highly detailed graphics and of course colour, Ano Gaia is a very good game and a lot better than some of the other shooters for the Spectrum which we had to pay for. Definately worth playing.
