Dr Hoot (1993)

[edit]

EXTERMINATE! Those bad metal dudes are up to their old tricks again. The year is 2254 and the Daleks have invaded planet Earth. Enter the timelord, our very own Doc Who, whose job it is to turn the Daleks into twists of tangled metal.

The telly show has provided the main ingredients of a meaty, workaday shoot 'em up. Packed with baddies including ogrons, robosumo wrestlers, mutants and dinosaurs, there is plenty to blast away and plenty to look at on screen.

Sprites are big and bold with well-drawn and interesting backdrops.

Most important of all, action is smooth, addictive and challenging so there's plenty of playing time in this one. There's some nice touches that will appeal to Dr Who fans — you can choose to be one of three of the timelords, Sylvester, Tom or Patrick.

Once again, there's nothing new or inventive but there's bags of baddie appeal which makes this one you'll want to reach for when you fancy a spot of alien bashing. SCORE DUDE SAYS: Fun shooter and at just £1 6.99 you can't go wrong. Pity every firm can't take their prices from Alternative Software. Keep up the good work, guys!
