And it's time, once again, for ZZAP!s monthly offering to those wizard programmers at Software Creations - and most especially the musicians. Tim Follin's soundtrack for this Capcom conversion is merely good by his standard but still brilliant for almost anyone else.

The basic game is ridiculously simple: it's futuristic race time with a superfast vertical scroll and a tight time limit to beat if you're to progress through all nine levels. There's canyons to leap, juggernauts and pesky frogs (which slow you down) plus a lot of collectables such as fuel, energy and brief invulnerability.

The Laser Enhanced Destruction raced to 94% in Issue 47, Kati raved, 'This has to be one of the fastest, most unusual and dead addictive games I've seen in ages.' Gordon praised the 'full-screen parallax scrolling, really brilliant soundtrack and totally absorbing gameplay.'

The rating was perhaps a tad high for such a simplistic, somewhat repetitive game and it's not quite so impressive nowadays, but it's till really playable and at this price definitely recommended.
