Sabre Wulf, Amstrad CPC

The Amstrad conversion of Sabre Wulf features the same chunky graphics as the BBC version, except with some extra colouring. It does make make a difference though. The Amstrad version doesn’t look quite as harsh as the BBC version.

Although the gameplay is reasonably accurate, I’m not entirely convinced by the actual playability of this conversion – the keyboard and joystick controls are a little sticky and the collision detection is also a little suspect. I found this to be more unforgiving than the original.

Still: Amstrad Sabre Wulf is not a bad game and is still worth a play now. Just from memory I managed to complete three quarters of the game, although I did use quicksaves. 🙂
