Summary

I think this was programmed by a skeleton crew.

The Good

Some great dark cybernetic visuals. Well rendered sprites and scenery. I particularly enjoyed the sinister brooding music. Once you get to grips with the controls, the characters can walk and massacre at a smooth pace.

The Bad

This title is incredibly short and yet boringly repetitive at the same time. You will find yourself fighting wave after wave of the same enemy types throughout the entire game. The levels themselves are overly similar, with some interesting ideas introduced in the first two stages which are then later abandoned completely.

While I enjoyed the music, the sound effects are very sparse with little in way of variation. The game is also far too easy, I completed it on my very first play-through. The whole experience seemed rushed.

The Bottom Line

This was an interesting looking title that could have held real potential if the creators had not abandoned it halfway. Check it out for curiosities sake, but that's it.
