Captain Blood - Sinclair Spectrum
[Sinclair Spectrum tape game]
Interesting game. The aim of the game is to fly around the galaxy to locate 5 clones of yourself and extract their life force to replenish yours. You have to fly probes along the planet surfaces, avoiding crashing into the terrain and beig detected in the hope of finding an inhabitant to communicate with who may have information relating to the location of one of your clones. Communication is done via icons (about 100 or so) which can be confusing. Its not the most playable game, but has an interesting graphical style and blowning up planets is fun. Definitley worth checking out the ST and Amiga versions if only for the Jean Michel Jarre music.
