Description

The Midnight Resistance fighters are up against the awesome powers of mad scientist King Crimson and his Crimson Corps. Crimson has kidnapped your scientist grandfather and five more of your relatives, and aims to put his advanced plans to evil use.

Take control of a Resistance fighter in this scrolling shoot 'em up consisting of nine platform-based levels, each ending with a Boss to defeat. Your enemies appear on foot and in vehicles, and Crimson has also planted machine gun bays en route.

Dead enemies release keys, which can be traded in at shop points for weapons. These weapons include machine guns and flamethrowers, for which ammunition must be bought - weapons are discarded when you have no suitable ammo. The control system is unusual - you can shoot in different directions and crawl along low ledges.

Trivia

April Fools'

The name was changed to Midnight Residence and used for a fake game that was reviewed by Commodore Format as an April Fools' joke.

Version differences

In the coin-op & Amiga versions, you must use two sticks to control the soldier and the gun; on Genesis & Atari ST, you can control both only with one stick.
