The beautiful Princess Sheeta has been abducted by the Golden Tribe, and you must battle through six levels in your neutron-powered car and galactic hoverplane.
Two planets that are in war with each other. On the planet Bacula, the Galden Tribe has overthrown the government and seized power over the whole world. They invade later to the peaceful planet of Mu and kidnapped Queen Sheeta. Armed with a vehicle of immense firepower, capable of leaping into the air to avoid ground hazards, you must destroy enemies on the ground and air. Shooting power pods scattered around the level allows the player to increase their firepower. The first level moves at a pretty fast pace and there's a lot of action. Unfortunately the pace of the second level slows down significantly, and it therefore takes a lot longer to reach the end of the level. The game is getting quite difficult at times, as it is way hard to avoid enemy fire or crashing onto the surroundings when trying to pass through very short pathways. Other than that, Last Duel is fun to play and offers plenty of action.
The graphics on the Commodore are very nice. Sprite animation is fluid whilst backdrops are nice and does the job well. But the CPC version looks much better, and offers more interesting details, although everything run slower there. The sound here is superior to the CPC and ZX ports offering some catchy sound effects and a great introductory.
