Atari 2600Game Freaks 365
The one main blow against this game is a lack of game modes. There’s only one game mode. The game select switch and the difficulty switches do not do anything of any significant consequence to the game, although one of them alters which sound effects are present in the game. Still, the one game mode that is present is engaging enough to make this game interesting and give it the potential to last a little while. If you can find this game fairly cheap, you should give it a try.

Atari 2600The Video Game Critic
Still, I like how it preserves all of the key elements of the arcade hit. And have you checked out the label on the cartridge? While it's a loose interpretation of the actual game, it's easily some of the best artwork ever created for a video game. A poster of it (from an Atari Age magazine) hung on the wall of my bedroom for many years, and I wish I still had it.

Phoenix - Spielhallen-erfahrene Spieler werden aufhorchen. Jawohl, diese Videospiel-Fassung basiert auf dem gleichnamigen Arcade-Spiel. Wie schon bei Centipede, so muß man allerdings auch in diesem Fall die Erwartungen herunterschrauben, denn die Arcade-Vielfalt wird nicht erreicht. Wesentlich vereinfacht flattert und blitzt es über den häuslichen Bildschirm.

Um jogo de combate, que exige pontaria e habilidade para desviar dos disparos inimigos.
