Review
Hudson HawkSTORY / GAMEPLAY
You play the role of Hudson Hawk, a cat burglar (performed by Bruce Willis in the homonymous blockbuster film). Hawk is sent on a mission to steal three Da Vinci artifacts. Walking through various levels in this platform game, you must avoid triggering alarms. In addition, security guards and dogs show up to hamper your mission. There are also some utterly pointless sub-games between levels where you take photos of faces in an attempt to create a mask. Overall, Hudson Hawk is a good but very tough game to play.

GRAPHICS / SOUND
The graphics are nice on the Spectrum version with good colors and the overall design is close to the CPC version (apart from the number of colors). The sprites move a bit smoother here (but cannot compare to the C64) while the game's scrolling seems a bit "jerky" (as in the CPC). Note that the gameplay runs on flick-screen mode (again much like the CPC version). The game offers a nice introductory tune but in-game you can only choose either SFX or music. Each stage tune is nicely composed and very pleasant to your ears!
