Explosive action as five of the best-selling Tengen coin-op conversions of last year gather together under one roof.
Explosive software is the billing and that's exactly what it is. Five superb titles forming superb value for money, with hordes of action to keep you busy over the winter months. Arcade addicts sit back and prepare for one of the biggest treats of your lives.
Here we go. First on the list is the classic car smash Hard Drivin'. Ok, so it's also being included on another of Domark's compilations, Wheels of Fire, but when you get a game this good, you can't blame anybody for giving it a little overexposure.
Rev up the engine and choose between a death defying battle of speed against the Phantom Photon, or a dice with death over the loops and turns of the stunning stunt course. Dare you try that awesome loop the loop?
Whichever, the superb 3D graphics will keep you coming back for more, while the slow motion replay option will make you cringe at your last error. Excellent stuff.
In a more lighthearted vein, take to the rapids, any rapids you like, be they in Africa, America, anywhere on the Earth, or even on the moon. Whatever, take to them in your crazy inflatable Toobs and prepare for some of the best fun in ages.
Try it on your own or against a friend as you speed down the waterways, dodging in and out of the posts, picking up bonuses and tin cans to throw at the lurking weeds and make sure you get past the finishing post first on your way to becoming all round top Toob Dude. This is pretty rad stuff, guaranteed to keep you glued to the screen til the bitter end, or should I say, watery end.
Further down the line, we have one of the best cops and robbers blasts of last year in APB. Take to the streets Constable Rookie and try to keep up as the villians tearoff in their getaway cars. You've got to make arrests to make the grade, so get after them.
Look out for some spectacular shoot out scenes amidst the excellent graphics, take the cars off the road and make that all important arrest. Hang on to your seat throughout for some of the best high speed chase scenes yet.
There are some excellent graphics sequences in this one, as well as some superb scrolling as you work your way from hard to harder. You'll need to be good to stay aboard your mount, one false move and it's all over.
Finally in this marvellous package, we come to Xybots, the epic tale of good versus bad in the world of the future. There you are, half guy, half robot with a mission. Clear the streets of criminal scum to make the world a better place for the rest of us. Sounds sweet doesn't it? Don't you believe it, this is one tough mother of a game and if you're not the fittest, you don't survive.
What have you got? You've got an awful lot wrapped up in one excellent package. If you like your action red hot, you'll like TNT.

L'Amstrad CPC est une machine 8 bits à base d'un Z80 à 4MHz. Le premier de la gamme fut le CPC 464 en 1984, équipé d'un lecteur de cassettes intégré il se plaçait en concurrent du Commodore C64 beaucoup plus compliqué à utiliser et plus cher. Ce fut un réel succès et sorti cette même années le CPC 664 équipé d'un lecteur de disquettes trois pouces intégré. Sa vie fut de courte durée puisqu'en 1985 il fut remplacé par le CPC 6128 qui était plus compact, plus soigné et surtout qui avait 128Ko de RAM au lieu de 64Ko.
