- Renegade -

I remember a game called double dragon very well which was a sidescrolling beatem up that spawned loads of clones. Renegade is basically a oneman fighting game in which loads of enemies come at you to try and stop you from rescueing your girlfriend. Well the plot may the most used in videogames but the game add loads of fighting moves with which you can dispatch opponents with.

Altough strictly speaking the game isn't really a scrolling game because most of the action takes place in a set location, you can move around and such but you cannot go on to the next area until you have beaten all the enemies at which time you go on. Each level consists of multiple areas and the last one contains a boss who is obviously much harder to defeat than your regular enemy. Some enemies will use weapons and when they are down you can pick them up to increase your fighting chances. You will need them because badguys don't play by the rules and in later levels they even use motorcycles to try and hit you but a welltimed flying kick will send them to their doom. There can be many enemies onscreen at once sometimes up to 7 or even 8 which can get very messy but hey the life of a hero isn't an easy one.

I admit I never played the first renegade very much but the sequel was one of my favorite fighting games at that time. This game tries hard to succeed at improving other fighting games but in doing so it it fails at some points, the lack of a two-player option is definately hurting it. Having many enemies on screen is ok but when you are constantly hit from all sides it can be very annoying. The addition of proper bosses is a good thing and enemies on bikes was quite innovating at the time. The game isn't a classic but definately worthy of playing so try it.

Overal rating: 6.5/10

This game was released for many different systems here are some notes:
Amiga Released in 1988.
Though a much more powerfull system only the graphics are slightly better.
Amstrad CPC Released in 1987.
The intro screen looks the best of all versions and graphically for once this is the best of the 8-bit versions.
C64 Released in 1987.
NES Released in 1987.
SMS - Sega
Master system
Released in 1993.
Released much later than the others it has things like a small intro and between levels there is some story involved. I reckon this version is the best.
ZX Spectrum Released in 1987.
The monochrome graphics make all the enemies look the same.
Others These versions are not available.
Apple released in 1989.
Atari ST released in 1988.
