As I have said, I haven't the faintest what is going on (please enlighten me, US Gold). but the graphics are superb, with the action taking place against a wonderful backcloth of 3D landscape, and the play is utterly addictive. If you are a lucky Atari owner and want to show someone what the fuzz is all about, just buy this and keep it booted up permanently.
This must be THE game of the moment for frustrated Atari owners with no new games to play. It's a fast moving combination of Defender and Jet-Pack with terrific graphics and sound - and a really neat line in explosions. [...] Fast smooth scrolling - as you'd expect from the Atari - nine different alien attackers and superb moon landscape graphics go to make this the best Atari game around right now. Atari owners can't afford to miss this one!

When it comes to games, I must admit that I am difficult to please but this game is both well thought out and programmed.I would easily give it nine out of then for everything including being addictive.
