“Stonkers was a war strategy game without all the finicky scenario setups that ate up the gameplay of many other tactic based games; it got right down to the good stuff. It appealed to veterans of the strategy genre, while the intense, non-stop action of the battles brings the game close to being an action title, making it equally accessible to fight junkies like us.”
84% – Retro Gamer (February 2006)

“This game offers an excellent war simulation and many trials will be necessary before reaching a winning strategy, even at the easiest level.”
83% – Tilt (May 1984)

“The graphics and overall presentation are excellent ... It gets to the point where you barely have any time left to think ... An excellent game”
78% – Crash! (March 1984)
