Reaxion
Commodore C16/Plus/4

Deep in the heart of the hills of Wenley something is amiss. The Wenley Moor nuclear power plant, buried five hundred feet below ground level, is at risk. The control computer has been infected by a virus from an unknown source. This virus has caused the complete shutdown of all computer systems and a total randomisation of the core settings. Fortunately, the computer is now offline, but there's a catch; all ninety nine cores are now dangerously unstable and, although all shields are in place for now, they will soon be unable to contain the entropy. It's up to you to straighten this mess out.

You have at your disposal a core monitor unit to remotely edit the rod statuses of each core in turn, but here's the problem; when you toggle a rod a chain reaction occurs in the surrounding eight causing them to flip states too. And worse still, the shielding has to be disabled to allow the monitor unit access to a core, effectively giving each a time limit until meltdown. Succeed and you save the entire planet from a gigantic nuclear explosion. Fail and that's it...

Control the monitor unit with a joystick in port 1, directions move the unit around over the fifty six rods of each core and fire toggles states.

This is, at the code logic level at least, a straight conversion of the C64 title Reaxion Extended and includes all ninety nine levels from the Amiga conversion designed and coded by Sean.

Review: The final product is a solid and well-implemented puzzle game that will give you more than a few hours of fun or frustration, depending on how you feel about the whole game.

Trivia: Wenley Moor is a Doctor Who reference taken from the story "The Silurians". The archive was revised 9th January 2006 to correct a bug in the highscore table code.
