ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
A straight port-over of the ST version, so it is just as impressive. Fabulous graphics and very demanding wave patterns. The sound effects and music were so good that they haven't had to be changed much either.

This is a sort of game which holds few surprises. Five levels, icons for extra lives, extra smart bombs and so on. Flying Shark is aiming at quality rather than originality. Given its crisp graphics and addictive gameplay, it would be a game to recommend – especially considering the weakness of some similar conversions – if it were not for some serious niggles.
The Games Machine (UK)
Comparisons with the ST are inevitable, but the game remains just as challenging. The concept is dated but it provides simple, enjoyable and addictive gameplay.
As arcade conversions go, this is rather weak, but as shoot 'em ups go, it isn't too bad. Once you've got over the fact that Firebird hardly seem to have bothered how accurately they've converted the game, it's quite enjoyable to play. It is a little unfair at times, though – especially when you lose a life to a team of fighters pumping bullets in all directions – but you soon learn the tactics to overcome this. A high price for an average conversion.
