Spectrum 2.0

Review of 'Buzzsaw+ (Foxton Locks Mix)'

Rating:4 User: YOR

This is one of the most highly rated modern games on the Spectrum, so I was intrigued to see it for myself. It's based on Cosmo Gang the Puzzle, which in turn was based on the Cosmo Gang redemption game and later became the basis of Pac-Attack. Graphically it is very impressive, no question about it and for some the graphics alone are enough to give it a 5 rating, but the gameplay is the main course of any game and here, while being pretty good, the game is a drag because of its painfully slow pace, which causes the levels to take forever to complete. Is this getting a 5 from me? Hell no it isn't, hell no, but a 4 is justified because it looks good and plays well enough too, but probably best to play it at double speed for maximum enjoyment.
