Classic Game Review: Alien Storm (ZX Spectrum)

My real problem with Alien Storm on the ZX Spectrum was that I then bought on the Sega Master System and thus was spoilt by the 8-bit version! This much more inferior version doesn’t keep up at all. For a Speccy game the graphics are very good but sadly its a one button masher. You move forward, you fire blindly and hope for the best. Think Streets of Rage with Aliens and your half way there but sadly without most of the moves and skill required. If you have classic consoles, pick this up on the Master System (I assume its on the Mega Drive too but I’ve not seen it) as its not only in color, but you have a few more moves and a bit more freedom to dodge, move and fire back! There are far too many better side scroller beat em ups.
