Summary

A Classic? I don't think so.

The Good

It had some interesting ideas.

The Bad

The graphics are awful, it has terrible beeper sounds, and the monsters look 2-D. And all of this in 1993! I thought we were way past beeper sounds. Come on! A year after Wolfenstein 3D and it's still about 10 times worse. I remember playing this game when I was 6 and thinking it was cool. So I downloaded it but I realized it sucked.

It has come to my attention that this game was made by a 12 year old. Good for him. I'm impressed. I know I wouldn't be able to make a game like this when I was 12 or even now. But that's why I don't make video games! Just because a game was made by a 12 year old does not make it a classic. This game sucks ass. Period.

The Bottom Line

Bad "3D" shooter. If you want a good 3D shooter try Wolf 3D or Doom.
