Predator is a 1987 side-scrolling action game based on the film of the same title.

Gameplay[edit]

The player starts off with no weapons and must collect them as the game progresses.[citation needed]

Reception[edit]

Predator received mixed but largely positive reviews across all the platforms, including the accolades of CU Screen Star from Commodore User for the Commodore 64 version and C+VG Hit! from Computer + Video Games for the ZX Spectrum version.[1][2] Rachael Smith of Your Sinclair gave the latter version of the game a score of 7/10, opining it has "great graphics, but too tough to get to grips with when sudden death sneaks up at every opportunity."[3] In Germany, Predator was put on the "Index" by the Bundesprüfstelle für jugendgefährdende Medien (BPjM),[4] which made it illegal to sell or make the game available to minors in Germany, as well as making it illegal to advertise the game in any form.[citation needed]
