    Challenges don't come much bigger than Viewpoint. Containing 5 enemy-infested levels, the game offers a simple aim: pilot the Byupo probe around obstacles while blasting anything that moves. Straightforward, you may think, but the huge number of dangers even on the easy level - eclipses even the very toughest shoot-'em-ups.

    Scrolling bottom left to top right Zaxxon-style, the pre-rendered sprites are amazing, as are the varying backdrops. There are no unlimited continues or autofire: Viewpoint knows its arcade roots. You start and finish with 3 lives and 3 continues, all of which will be used - over and over again. A truly tough nut to crack, but a game you're sure to remember.
