Summary

With so many other platform games that are more fun, why play this one?

The Good

Everything that I liked about this game I also didn't like in another way. Like the map. Oh, good idea have a map. But what's the point off the map since the graphics are so awful in that part of the game. The only thing in this game I found remotely interesting was the way you could control the laser after you shot it.

The Bad

A lot. The graphics are not very impressive. The controls were not very smooth at all. You would run to try to get momentum so you could make a long jump. But when you pressed the jump button he would stop then jump so he lost all his momentum.

The Bottom Line

If you want a good platform game try something like Commander Keen, or Duke Nukem. Not this piece of junk.
