Spectrum 2.0

Review of 'Fairlight'

Rating:5 User: The Dean of Games

1985 The Edge (UK)
by Bo Jangeborg, Jack Wilkes, Niclas Osterlin and Mark Alexander

Truth be told that the plot is great and that surely makes it a great game. It has a universe of it's own and one can immerse in it quite easily. Graphically, it's slighyly different from other similar games, specially Ultimate games, which seem like a variation on themselves. Fairlight as it's own style, not so polished as are the Ultimate games, but still quite good. I'm not a fan of Isometric games, but this was one of my favourites, together with The Great Escape. Both classics of the Spectrum era.
