Tag Team Wrestling is a two-versus-two wrestling game. You can choose from eight different teams and fight your way to the championship. The graphics are average – not much detail on the sprites and in the background. Besides that, all the teams look the same in the ring! There is a small variety of moves; one kick, one grab, one punch, and that's all. You can also run and execute a flying kick, but you will never hit the target. The gameplay suffers; you will probably be badly beaten by the computer, and because of the small variety of moves, you will become bored easily. The sound is almost absent, just like the grab factor. Overally, this game is light years behind WWF Wrestlemania and it is a hasty job.

Tales of the Arabian Nights
(Interceptor, 1985)

The evil Sultan of Saladin has captured Prince Imrahil's sister and taken her to Baghdad, and you must rescue her. Starting on one of the Sultan's ships, you must collect seven jugs in the correct order, spelling out the word 'Arabian', before you can travel along the river Anhil to a cavern, where you encounter some genies and must again collect seven jugs. Once you've done that, you fly across the desert to the gates of Baghdad to – you've guessed it – collect seven more jugs. This is a mediocre platform game that has dated badly. The graphics and music are fairly primitive, but the collision detection is poor and ruins the game completely, and the second and fourth levels are far too easy.

Another horizontally scrolling space shoot-'em-up to look at and play. What's this one like, then? Erm... it's not that good. Just control your spacecraft and fire at the oncoming waves of aliens, spaceships and rocks, while facing the occasional large alien which will take a lot of shots to kill, and collecting a few power-ups on the way (which seem to have little effect). I've seen it all before. The graphics are OK – they're rather colourful – but the sound effects are rather basic, and the scrolling is relatively slow and jerky.

Tank Busters (AA)
(Design Design, 1985)

You've somehow been marooned on another world and have to shoot all the blue objects to escape. However, there are tanks who are out to get you, and each time you shoot one, another will appear. On the screen, you can see a radar map showing the location of the tank and any missiles it fires. Unfortunately, since the graphics are so minimal, finding that last crystal can be frustrating, but in fact you should be able to complete any game in under ten minutes. Despite it being one of the easiest games I've played, there's still something about it which makes me go for it whenever I feel like a quick blast.

Your mission is to rescue agents stranded within the battle zone. You travel in your tank, crawling over many types of terrain in a 2D map setting. Enemy tanks, trucks and turrets lie in wait, and when sighted, pressing the fire button activates the battle mode. Here the game changes to 3D view where you elevate your gun to the correct angle in order to score a direct hit. The loading screen is well drawn in MODE 1, making good use of colour. Game-wise, the graphics for the map are varied and colourful. The battle mode is also detailed, displaying mountains, hills, fields, etc. Sound effects are limited to shots and explosions. An interesting game that carries just the right difficulty level.

Tapper
(Amsoft, 1986)

Can you help the bartender serve all the customers as they flow continually into your bar? The bar consists of four long tables, and customers move along the tables. Once any of them reach the bar, you lose a life, and the way to avoid this is to throw a mug of beer along the table to the customer, which hopefully will send them out of the bar altogether; if you completely clear the bar of customers, you go to the next level. You also have to collect empty mugs as the customers throw them back to you. The action is frantic, but the controls are rather unresponsive when there is a lot of action on the screen, and by the third level, the amount of customers becomes so overwhelming that it seems to be impossible to progress any further. Still, it's an entertaining game with colourful graphics.

Target Plus
(Dinamic, 1988)

As the name suggests, this is a target shooting game that requires MHT's Gunstick; you can't play this game without it. There are two games you can choose from. In the first one, you must shoot insects and prevent them from eating a chicken that is sitting on a table – yes, you read that correctly. The pace is rather slow and boring, and it's a silly idea anyway. The second game is a clay pigeon shooting session in which discs are thrown into the air and you must shoot them to score points; the further away they are, the more points you score. You won't play the first game for long, but the second game is a bit more interesting.

Renegade's brother Matt has been brutally killed for snooping into the affairs of gangland boss Mr. Big, and now our hero must set out once again, this time to avenge his brother's death. Basically what we have here is an almost total clone of Renegade. The level settings are similiarly urban (there's the run-down car park and the seedy city streets), the bad guys have the same moves as their Renegade counterparts, and so does Renegade himself! However, there are a few differences; apart from the ability to pick up weapons dropped by the thugs (a welcome addition), there is a pretty good simultaneous two-player mode. It has decent graphics, some lovely music, but just isn't quite as good as Renegade – also, it gets very difficult and has the strictest time limit in gaming history!

Targhan
(Silmarils, 1990)

Targhan is on a quest to defeat a powerful lord known as the Evil One, whose castle lies beyond the mountains of Clorg. The quest will take him through forests, caverns and villages. The game is a mixture of fighting action, killing enemies with your sword and shurikens, and adventure; you'll encounter scrolls which give you clues, and other objects to help you in your quest. The graphics are breathtaking – some of the best I've ever seen, and I mean that – and there's some excellent music on the title screen as well. Unfortunately, it's a big game and you can only save your position at specific points, and I found that exploring the caverns became rather boring. Stick with it, though, and you might find that it's a pretty good game.

Task Force
(Players, 1989)

Snide Gantree and his minions have overrun a military base in the South Pacific, and he has also managed to hack into the computers which control the missiles that are stored at the base. You have to fly around the base and collect documents that will prevent the missiles from being launched, although when you find a document, you have to complete a Tower of Hanoi-style game where you shift rings from one column to another. You are armed with a large number of power-ups, including a limited amount of invulnerability, and you can collect more of them as you explore the base. There's nothing original about the game at all; the graphics are very good and very colourful, which I like, but the amount of aliens is overwhelming, and it's quite difficult to select the right power-ups in the middle of a battle.
