PARA ASSAULT COURSE
by Zeppelin Graphics
& Reviewed by Neil Collins
Para Assault Course by Zeppelin is another army
based endurance game in the style of Combat School. Your
aim is to complete all the tough courses in the give
time limits. The graphics and animation are pretty good,
and it plays well but it's too repetitive. Each course
is almost the same and you soon get fed up of the
joystick waggling. It's not one of Zeppelin's best, and
I'd recommend you play a sports game with more variety
than this if you fancy some racing action.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
I cheated. I stopped the clock with some pokes.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
Once you cross the final finish line, the cadet turns
and waves to you. The words 'Well Done' appear in white
text before the game takes you to the high score table.
A truly terrible ending. I think it's another game that
the designers didn't expect to be beaten by anyone
without cheating. 1/10.
- Vinny: It's
inevitable that we're all going to make the association
Combat School by Ocean Software, of which I spent
many an afternoon with my schoolmates battling it out to
become the latest victor. But Combat School was a
full-price game whereas Para Assault Course was only
£3.99, which showed in the scores given by ZZAP!64
magazine: 91% and 67% respectively. I suppose this is
acceptable for a budget title, but I'd still opt to play
Combat School instead.
As for the ending... hmmm...
now that's a little flat. An animated wave and a "WELL
DONE"! 1.5/10 from me.
- Andy Vaisey:
Slightly misplaced music. Main sprite that slides till
you get up to speed. Screen glitches. Impossible water
jumps. Short courses. As mentioned, I suppose these
flaws are acceptable given the budget price.
However, the poor ending isn't acceptable. Well
done??!?! Pfff! And why does the solider sprite look
quite tough side-on during the game, but face on at the
end, he looks a bit... I dunno.. seems to me he has
moobs and birthing hips or something?
- Andrew Fisher:
They ran out of energy and did not stay the course - a
FINAL SAY: That's really poor. Lucky I didn't
put more effort into beating it.
