Dan Dare on the two machines are very
different games. On the spectrum Digby, Dan's little sidekick' stays
onboard the spaceship, while on the Commodore he comes along and helps
Dan in his quest. In both games Dan has to defeat the evil Mekon, the
Commodore version is more adventure and less arcade while the Spectrum
version is the opposite.
Both games are good in their own right, the sequals to the original Dan
Dare were however the same on both machines. The game however breaks
new ground on the Spectrum. There is very littile color clash, Dan can
move behind objects with only the hue changing not the whole screen
becoming a pink mess. At the time most people, including me, didn't
believe it could be done. So, well done to Spectrum programmers.
The Commodore game is very different,
I remember playing it alot when it was first released. it is a good
game but it didn't break any technical ground on the Commodore.
IIn my opinion it is a draw, Spectrum owners showing the Commodore guys
that you don't always have to have color clash might tip it slightly in
favor of the Spectrum guys...
