Spectrum 2.0

Review of 'Saboteur!'

Rating:5 User: Matt_B

Following the earlier tradition of Bruce Lee this is a game that mixes both a bit of martial arts and platform arcade adventure. However, where the earlier game rapidly becomes an easy plod, Saboteur has a vast playing area with a warehouse linked to underground complexes via rail tunnels from which you must recover a computer disk and escape via a helicopter. There are some guards who are relatively easy to dispatch and some vicious dogs who will slow you down and presumably set the RSPCA onto you if you try to kill them.

Although not terribly original, the whole thing comes together very well to make one of the most memorable arcade adventures for the Spectrum. With nine levels of difficulty and a large map to explore, there's plenty of replay value too for once you've finished it.
