Summary

The first true Arcade game on the PC

The Good

When I first loaded Thexder, I was blow away. I had never seen anything like it on a PC. Its EGA colors and fast, smooth action showed me that the PC could be a good machine for arcade games when properly programed. The game also tested you mind, as many areas required you to solve puzzles to move on.

The Bad

I disliked the sequel.

The Bottom Line

One of the classic PC games that should be remembered.
