Reviews: Quartet / Double Target - Cynthia no Nemuri (ダブルターゲット シンシアの眠り) / Double Target (더블 타케트) - review by CVG magazine "Complete Guide to Sega"

Sega's fairly unimpressive coin-op only really took off in the arcades because it copied Atari's idea of simultaneous four-player action. However, this effort takes our heroes across horizontally scrolling platform screens where they blast any aliens who dare to cross their path.

Of course, in this Sega conversion there's no chance of four players taking part simultaneously, but instead two can play at this game (shouldn't it be called Duet?) and choose their heroes from the original four.

Unfortunately, the Sega version of Quartet is pretty tedious. The backdrops are faintly interesting, but the sprites and sound are both unremarkable. However, the thing that really lets the game down is the complete lack of variety between each level. If you've seen one level, you've seen 'em all...
