If the Codies spent as much time on the instructions of their games as they do writing the ridiculous crap that they put on the back of them, the world would be a happier place. Luckily, Violator isn't a game that needs a lot of explaining, being another Flying Shark/SWIV/Sidewinder clone, similar to the Codies' own recent Kamikaze but considerably better.

Violator features polished graphics and scrolling, comparing favourably with full-price games in this field. The gameplay is good too, the only drawback being the high number of hits your helicopter can absorb, compared with the instant destruction resulting from collision with enemy vehicles.

Overall though, this is a very impressive product which will keep vertical zap fans occupied for many an hour.
