From C64 Diskmag Wiki
grand prix simulator 2 - code masters the second g.p. simulator, a low budget game from codemasters reaches the quality of the predecessor ! the game consists of digi-speech, a nice music and some average graphics. your task is to drive against 2 opponents and also against a time limit. you have to solve different tracks with your (very) little car, but you need much skill to manage some tracks. the game has a 3-player-modus, some nice effects are entertaining you like the replay after each track. valuation : 71 ninja warriors the sales curve/mastertronic ninja warriors convince with ugly graphics and a cruel music arising a pain in your head! from my point of view only the biggest ninja fans play this game to the end, because the bad programming work deprives you of all your motivation you maybe had. you have to fight against an army, monsters and other ninja-fighters! after you have managed the 6 levels, you see a textscreen with another bad music! if you have an amiga, buy the amiga-version, it's great! val. 29 wild streets - titus after titus released some nice games on the amiga, they produced a c64 game, but they better hadn't done that! this game is really a flop, because i have never seen such bad graphics in a full-price game! and the music is hurting your brain !! the sprites and the animation of them is just ridiculous ! i can only warn you not to buy this game(and even not to copy it, because it's a pure waste of time) ! but maybe it is a joke ! valuation : 08 target - graunitz software target, the first game of the author michael wandel, challanges you to fight your way through 4 levels ! in each you have to shoot the enemies until a big enemy appears, after you have fighted him, you can go to the next level! the graphics are good looking(by gotcha and mike) and the music composed by rockin' limited sounds pretty good ! althouh the levels are quite similar you don't loose the motivation, because new opponents and formations are showing up ! valuation: 73 the champ - linel soft you aren't the champ yet, but you are on the best way to be one - with linel's new boxer-simulation ! you steer a boxer through 15 rounds or to a knock out. the background- graphics are average, but the boxer himself and the animation is very good, it makes really fun to play this game! you can also save the actual worldrank and your personel highscore. nice effects are coming during the whole game! i didn't discover any music, but it's the best boxing game i seen on c64! val. 86 ok! you have seen that there weren't so many tests as usual, but you may have recognized that there didn't come out so many games last months! anyway keep cool !!
