Not bad Alien Breed clone, even with so choppy animation. I think it should be commercial game.

        An easy game to pick up. Simply use the joystick to move around
     the map, the view scrolls to keep you in the centre.  Firebutton
     causes you to fire in the direction currently faced. Use spacebar to
     change between any weapons carried and the return key to throw
     grenades (Stand well back from your target!).

        Version 1.02 has no known bugs to date (8/2/94) but if anyone
     finds any please let me know by writing to the address below.
     Currently it should run on any ST/STFM/STE upto TOS version 1.62. The
     program is NOT TOS 2.6 compatible but I don't know about higher TOS
     versions. I know there is a TOS 2.6 fix available (I possess a copy)
     but it does not work properly on ACTION BUGHUNT, some of the routines
     fail to function.

        If you enjoy this game then you will probably be interested in
     receiving Bughunt II. It is a much, much larger game with many more
     features. Apart from more weapons (Mines, Electromats etc), proper
     object manipulation (Get, Drop, Use), more interactive scenery
     (Machines, lockable doors etc), massively increase strategic element
     (A complex mission system that allows item retrieval, object
     placement, survivor rescue etc), there are also enhancements for
     larger machines. If you have 1Meg or more then the sound quality is
     improved and there are more samples. You also get more graphics. If
     you own an STE then the game palette is enhanced. Users with a second
     disc drive bonus from not having to change discs during the game
     (Bughunt II is on two discs!). Other features include 60Hz screen
     support and a save game facility.

        A full manual and the two discs costs only œ6.00 from the address
     below. For another œ3.50 you will also receive the second data disc
     which contains another set of levels for the game.
