Spectrum 2.0

Review of 'Metropolis'

Rating:2 User: YOR

This was inspired by the Capcom arcade game Trojan, which unbelievably never got a port on the home computers. A Spectrum version was planned but was ultimately never released. So if you liked Trojan and wanted it on your Spectrum this was the closest you got to it. The level design is different and there is no jump hotspot to kill higher enemies but he has a sword and a shield so that's as Trojan as you can get. It looks really nice but for me the gameplay is a bit arse. I had a really hard time with the hit detection here and it's so easy for the enemy to walk right past you and drain your health in the process. Not impressed with this.
