SummaryPar for the course in a stale genre
The GoodFast, smooth, and polished. Mindless fun.
The BadThe pattern-oriented vertically scrolling shooter became very stale between 1983 and 1994. Raptor doesn't add anything new or interesting to this type of game. In fact, if you go back to the genre-defining Xevious from over ten years earlier, you'll find that it is more sophisticated than Raptor in many ways.
