Blackthorne review

Electronic Games (1994): "Blackthorne it’s a platform game, pretty much linear, with both puzzle and mild shoot-’em-up elements, and not much more real plot than most such games. The fact is, regardless of whether one is really caught up in the idea of vanquishing evil, the process of getting Kyle Blackthorne through all 17 levels (four each in four areas, plus a final boss level in the last area) does become absorbing.
What’s so appealing about it? Well, the graphics are great, with well-rendered backgrounds and enough frames of animation for most characters to provide a lifelike appearance to their activities. Blackthorne's movements approach the natural level of Prince of Persia. They include walking, running, jumping, climbing (with or without ladders), shooting forward or behind, crouching, and rolling. Many of these can be with or without gun in hand."
