Fight your way through five tough scenes of beat-'em-up action to meet Mr Big and give him a right good wacking. Target: Renegade is the second of the three games and provides some great action packed punch ups.

The game is set in the city of Scumville and each scene will bring different types of villains for you to deal with. You can attempt to battle through the game on your own or alternatively get a friend along for the ride. Two players can play simultaneously, each protecting the other. This way you stand a much better chance of surviving.

The baddies can pop up from anywhere. Some hide in doorways and others attempt to run you down on their motorbikes. They would be quite easy to kill with a well placed punch or kick if it weren't for the deadly weapons they carry. Mallets, axes and metal bars are just a few of the gruesome objects they use. Fortunately these weapons can be of use to you too.. Just punch the bod with the weapon and you can steal it from him.

Graphics are all well drawn, sprites are animated well and backgrounds have their fair share of colour. The levels get better as you progress, starting the multi-storey car park and going through the shopping mall to the bar where you can battle with Mr Big around a snooker table. I really enjoyed it when it was first released and it's got me hooked again. Target: Renegade is excellent, non-stop beat='em-up action all the way.
