SummaryA worthy conversion of a great game, later outclassed by similar titles
The GoodThe theme music is among the most catchy ever, and the Amiga's sound hardware was ideal to recreate it. You could happy sit there listening to it without even playing the game.
I recommend playing it though. The level designs are intricate, with some great attack patterns and a variety of enemies to surprise you, all recreated in minute detail from the arcade. The look and feel is spot on.
This was a hugely innovative game, spawning a number of similar titles.
The BadUnfortunately, games like Project X and Disposable Hero contained better power-up systems, more balanced difficulty levels, and far prettier graphics, especially backgrounds.
The game style seems rather passé now, in an age where we're used to viewing action from the human perspective, and having control mechanisms to suit.
