Review:

This is immediately striking for its use of what looks like loading screen bars around the edges and a very colourful main screen. Your character has fluid movement and it scrolls at a very fast rate.

An unusual element is the use of inertia, making control difficult at first but it is satisfying once mastered. You can start flying around the game world at a rapid pace and it has some impressive programming for a budget release, albeit one late in the Spectrum's life.
