A GUN LAW
clone from Tynesoft which follows the Commando theme popularised by
many recent computer games.
Armed with an automatic rifle and 12 grenades you must embark on a
desperate mission to rescue prisoners held captive in enemy
garrisons. Each subsequent mission becomes a survival quest as you
tackle the endless hoardes of defending troops and crack snipers.
Extra points are awarded for destroying enemy trains, jeeps, boats,
staff cars and tanks, with a bonus life arriving at 10,000 points.
You also gain an additional 6 grenades for each captured outpost.
The title screen is well designed and the background music — 'The
Great Escape' — quite appropriate, but the game is let down in other
departments. The use of colour, for instance, is nothing short of
diabolical. What you get are green trees and then everything else in
shades of yucky brown. It's like an explosion in a sewage factory!!
Not a bad game by any standards ....... pity about those colours
