GRYZOR PREVIEW (ZX SPECTRUM)

A playable preview of Gryzor is included on certain versions of Combat School for ZX Spectrum and vice versa. It was supposed to be featured in an issue of Crash magazine; many believe that the magazine gave this game a poor rating because Paul Owens, one of Gryzor’s developers, did not submit the demo in time. Copies had circulated among disk traders before the game’s commercial release.

It is a preview of the 128K variant, but lacks audio entirely. It features the 2 base stages without the Defense System battles that follow them. The player is provided the Machine Gun. One interesting difference from the final version is the presence of the steel barricade in some of the corridors.
