Target Renegade Mod - Enhanced beat em up for the ZX Spectrum
In 1988 Ocean Software ( Imagine Label ) released a fine beat em up for the Amstrad CPC, C64 and ZX Spectrum. It was a great title that featured both single player and two player fighting with you playing as street fighters known only as Renegade, in a revenge against a kingpin named "Mr. Big" for murdering their brother. But today's news sees the release of a 'Target Renegade Mod' by R.M (Ralf) which not only enhances the colours throughout the game, but also gives it new backgrounds, more challenging game play and a higher number of enemies to fight.
Target Renegade Mod is freely available as a standalone release for your ZX Spectrum, you do not need the original Target Renegade to play. The only negative of this release however is right from the start if you get knocked over, it can prove to be too difficult to get back up and knock the bikers off with a swift jump kick. Also according to the developer, the two player doesn't work correctly, which is a huge shame as this release can have too many enemies at one time to deal with.
But apart from that, this is a very good release for the ZX Spectrum and one that will sit nicely next to the original Target Renegade.
