Onslaught review

Zero Magazine Issue 3 (1990) - "Although initially Onslaught's appeal seems to lie in its adventure game setting and the pseudo-strategy bit with the map, it's really a shoot 'em up through and through. And a darned good one too. Hewson has once again come up with a cunning interfusion of violence, variety and graphical fabness which, while it hardly breaks any moulds, certainly looks different. Above all Onslaught is a fun game to play and should certainly fend off Old Father Time admirably."
