Games TM - - RETRO -

there’s a lot to like about Elite’s adap­ta­tion of the pop­u­lar tv show. the con­cept is sound, with stringfel­low Hawke (clas­si­cally Eight­ies name) nav­i­gat­ing his epony­mous at­tack chop­per through a deep un­der­ground base in search of five miss­ing sci­en­tists. the chop­per is chal­leng­ing, but not im­pos­si­ble, to mas­ter and the level de­sign is solid, re­quir­ing you to shoot out switches so you can travel deeper into the com­plex. It’s a pity that the in­fa­mous re­gen­er­at­ing walls that you need to shoot down to progress are just as frus­trat­ing to take out now as they were in 1984.
