Summary

A wonderful piece of software.

The Good

Well, for one, it's written in LISP - and I can definitely appreciate rarities. The graphics get an A-OK - detailed and well drawn (they remind me a bit of Amiga's Alien Breed) and the game engine works well and is really fast. The music/sound effects are good too, and the gameplay is fun.

The Bad

It's very repetitive, but then it's a shooter, so what do you expect?

The Bottom Line

A rare find - a very good game written in LISP.
