Heroes don't come more heroic than this. Dan Dare, clean-cut, square-jawed, stiff-upper-lipped, all British good guy who will never let you down.
He's the sort of chum you need in a tight corner — when the Mekon. evil scientific mastermind leader of the Treens, is threatening to overrun the Good Ship Earth with a genetically engineered race of Supertreens, for instance These Supertreens are kept in Plexiglass Life Support Systems throughout the four levels of the Mekon's spaceship. He must discover and explore all the levels, find all the Supertreens, sabotage their control boxes to activate the level destruct sequence.
However, the destruct sequence starts from the very first moment Dan blasts the control box. And that means he only has limited time to destroy all the other controls and escape to the next level.

If you don't want to play the good guy, you can take on the , character of the Mekon. He also must locate the Supertreens and then activate them. Dan Dare's arrival in the craft has activated the destruct sequence, so he - or it - is also up against time.
The Mekon's ship is like a huge maze, filled with Treen guards on jetbikes equipped with lasers, forcefields, lasers and, of course, your own space pilot pals.
The Mekon vessel is shown in cross-section the main features of which are;
Ventilation ducts- used to circulate air around the spacecraft and the air currents can be used to help your progress around. Of course, trying to move against the air flow is a little difficult

 


A Treen bites the dust on the Amstrad

Force field - these seal off and protect areas of the craft. They are controlled by one of four forcefield generators.
Lasers - these laser cannons will rapidly drain your energy. Best to avoid them.
Air lifts - used to deploy Treen guard squads only.
Artificial gravity generators -although harmless they can make movement awkward.
Blast doors - these doors will open when blasted. But they will re-close within a few seconds.
Force field generator computers - these control current around the ship and can be destroyed.
Refuse crushers - designed to remove waste products from the ship, the crushers are very dangerous to pass.
In a straight head to head (rather unfair, I know) I plump for the Spectrum version as the victor. It's colourful and -although at times it was a little difficult to distinguish the good guys from the bad - it was more playable and I was able to get further into the game.
The Amstrad Dare, while quite nice to look at, felt a little "dead" on play.
Although quite playable in a fairly unoriginal way, I still feel Dan Dare and the Mekons as a concept has a lot more to offer than this game achieves. Will there be a Dan Dare HI?

L'alinéa 8 de l'article L122-5 du Code de la propriété intellectuelle explique que « Lorsque l'œuvre a été divulguée, l'auteur ne peut interdire la reproduction d'une œuvre et sa représentation effectuées à des fins de conservation ou destinées à préserver les conditions de sa consultation à des fins de recherche ou détudes privées par des particuliers, dans les locaux de l'établissement et sur des terminaux dédiés par des bibliothèques accessibles au public, par des musées ou par des services d'archives, sous réserve que ceux-ci ne recherchent aucun avantage économique ou commercial ». Pas de problème donc pour nous!

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.
