Summary

Excellent shooter for the SMS

The Good

All the power-ups give you lots of choices for different weapons. The BGM is good enough to get stuck in your head. The speed of the scrolling at times can make you dizzy but this was a good thing.

The Bad

This was a Sega Club exclusive from Tonka when it first came out. The only way to get it was to buy 3 other games on the list. So in theory I got it for shipping and handling but I had to buy $90 worth of other games first. Besides that the only other glitch worth mentioning is the annoying flicker of the enemies when they are on the same horizontal space.

The Bottom Line

Top down vertical scrolling shooter with power-ups just about says it all. Great if you are a shoot em up player. Originally it was only available to people that signed up for the Sega Club.
