Issue 9 (November 1984) (Your Spectrum)   27th Dec 2008 07:51
Automata / £6.00

David: The tedious scenario for this arcade game casts you as a miniaturised BURT inside a computer. Your mission? To track down the 'Big Bug', by tunnelling through RAM and collecting various items along the way. And if you think that sounds like an original idea, I don't know where you've been for the last few months.
The graphics are very reminiscent of Pi-Balled's characters, and are both colourful and well-animated. The game's actually quite difficult to succeed at, especially when you're creating new tunnel knowing that there's a band of nasties on your tail. I must admit though, that it didn't inspire the 'just one more go then ...' feeling that should come with a good game. On the other hand, it's a reasonable version of its kind and is well supported by good graphics and sound. While it does have a Kempston joystick option, I found it too unresponsive to be useful and ended up back at the keyboard.
This game certainly won't stun the computer world by leaping up the charts - but it should be a success among Piman fans. 3/5

Ron: The title does nothing to suggest that this is nothing but a Mr Do! rip-off ... but so what. The game's great fun, and it's certainly my tip for the top. 4/5

Roger: At last - an arcade game that requires some detailed strategic planning. Automata's Piman games do have a tendency to be a bit similar but, having said that, it's quite difficult to play. 3/5
