Spectrum 2.0

Review of 'Penetrator'

Rating:4 User: Dynamic Geezer

Penetrator was one of the first games I ever played on the ZX Spectrum.

The game was a smooth scrolling Scramble type game scrolling from right to left.

The game had you has a cyan spaceship which could fire missiles and drop bombs at targets on a jagged terrain.

The aliens were basically missiles, radars and a funny looking face type space-craft in the later levels. From memory I think there were four levels with a training mode and a design your own level mode.

The more radars on the screen made the aliens missiles more accurate and the game was fast paced and very playable.

The game didn't have joystick compability with the Kempston joystick until Kempston bought out a tape which converted it to work. I remember the keys were odd to play the game but once you got used to them it worked ok!

Worth playing even today!
