Summary

Good conversion of Taito's popular arcade game of the same name.

The Good

The PC version adds many bonuses and extras to the original from the early 80's. The game is very similar to an early game called Qix: you take control of an object whose purpose is roam the screen, closing rectangles and removing them from the playfield. The goal is to clear 80% or more of the screen, and each additional percent adds more points to your balance.

The Bad

Volfied features 1- or 2- player games in three difficulty levels but no passwords or saved game feature. It is much more difficult than the original arcade version, although there are three levels of difficulty to choose from.

The Bottom Line

Overall, as fun and addicting as the original, with dozens of levels to ensure that you'll keep coming back to it for a while.
