Spectrum 2.0

Review of 'Cyberball'

Rating:1 User: YOR

There have been many bad arcade ports on the Spectrum, this might be one of the worst. The music is nice, I'll give it that, but it plays nothing like the arcade game. It plays at a painfully slow frame rate, the keys are unresponsive and half the time I don't even know who has the ball or where the ball is. It's also hard on your ears as well as your eyes, what on earth is with the sound in this game. I'm not sure if Stephen Wood was the programmer or graphics artist or what he did with the game but the cassette inlay states it was programmed by Quixel, who also done Licence to Kill which was a very decent game, so for them to program this disaster a year later is astonishing! This has to be among the worst arcade conversions on any system let alone the Spectrum.
