Summary

Basic but addictive.

The Good

I just couldn't stop playing this game until the end. It's a basic game, just flying your plane against ever denser patterns of enemies, yet it has an addictive charm. Frequently frustrating, completing it evolves from a random button mash to a series of well-executed timed moves. a sheer testament to basic programming.

The Bad

Well, there's actually nothing to the game, upon completing it I was left with that hollow feeling like I'd just wasted my time.

The Bottom Line

A classic addictive game from a well-run genre, I hope I don't get sucked into another one.
