DoctorSpuds Reviews Things - Spacemaster X-7 (20th Century Fox)


Recommended Posts

I’m going to try something a bit different today, I’m going to try and compress an entire review into one paragraph, let’s go. Spacemaster X-7 is one of the more original games released by TCF, and as far as I can tell it isn’t tied in with any known license. The main objective of the game is to destroy the star base in the center of the screen, by shooting it a whole bunch; this is made more difficult with an expanding and contracting shield that has ever shifting entrances. It’s not smooth sailing as soon as you get inside the shield though since the base, especially in later levels, will begin shooting differently behaving projectiles to pursue your ship or to just be a nuisance. The graphics in this game are extremely basic consisting of a mainly black screen, your ship the base and the shield, there is a basic HUD but nobody really cares about those. The only two things really worth noting when it comes to the graphics are the, somewhat, smoothly expanding shield and the explosion effect when you destroy the base. I was fortunate enough to get my hands of the Taiwan Cooper version of this game ‘Spider’ since the actual TCF carts usually go for around 15-20$ on Ebay and I got my ‘Spider’ in the box for less than 10$. Sadly I will have to put this game in the Collector’s Zone simply because the gameplay doesn’t justify the price tag that comes along with it
