Summary

One of the best side-scrollers ever!

The Good

The graphics in this game are good, although pixely. The movies are interesting, and it is exiting when the music changes, so you know there will be a boss soon. The bosses are huge and powerful. Also, the idea of credits and purchasing weapons is fun. I also liked the hidden powerups.

The Bad

As I said before, the graphics are a bit pixely. Also, it is hard. Finally, it scrolls (I'm not saying this is a bad feature, though! I just didn't like it).

The Bottom Line

A side-scrolling shoot'em up in which you fly a ship, collect credits, and destroy bosses in three unique episodes.
