Spectrum 2.0

Review of 'Farmer Jack in Harvest Havoc!'

Rating:5 User: thingley

One of the things I missed most on the speccy back in the eighties was a good conversion of Mr. Do.

To be fair I never played Mr. Do until years later - but I had played Mr. Wiz (a great BBC unofficial conversion by superior software) and wanted to play something just as good as that on the speccy.

Well, I finally did. In 2008.

This conversion really gives a great feeling of the arcade. There's a good feeling of weight to the sprites which have a lot of character and the whole thing just 'plays well'.

Just like Mr. Wiz I'm rubbish at it. But like all good arcades it never feels unfair and drags me back for another go.
