> SIGMA SEVEN by Durell


• Completed by Neil Collins & Vinny Mainolfi
Reviewed by Neil Collins

Sigma Seven by Durell is an isometric style shoot-em-up. It looks and plays similarly to Zaxxon, but has Pac-Man style levels that makes it a little different to the rest. There are also puzzle stages at the end of each of the levels where you have to deactivate the machines and progress to the next one.

It plays ok and it's not too difficult to get pretty far, so it's a challenge to beat but not unbeatable. The aim is to deactivate the seven space factories by completing each of the three stages within the level.

The graphics are nicely drawn but most levels look very much the same.

It's not the best shoot-em-up but it's pretty decent and worth a look as it's quite unusual.


The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:

  • Neil: I played a trained version of the game.
     
  • Vinny: Obviously, I cheated and jumped straight to the ending with JMP $2EDF. Simple ;-)

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: After the last level is beaten, you get a message on the screen which reads 'MISSION COMPLETE. ALL SIGMA STATIONS ARE NOW FUNCTIONING CORRECTLY... WELL DONE...'. A cool victory tune plays while you are prompted to enter your name into the high score table.

COMMENTS:

  • Neil: Really poor ending, but the music is pretty cool so I'm giving it a an extra mark for that. 2/10.
     
  • Vinny: I remember buying the original of this in a bargain bucket. It's a nice enough game and worth a look... even if it is to listen to the Rob Hubbard track ;-)

    As for the ending... it wasn't really going to be much else! 2/10 from me too.
  • Andrew Fisher: Durrell made great games on Spectrum but never hit the heights on the C64. This is a nice idea let down by repetition. A simple ending screen.

FINAL SAY: The token short text ending, but check out them sonics!

G.E. RATING: 2 / 10
