Summary

Fast and furious

The Good

The targets fly across the screen in really fast and in waves. There's no place to hide!

I liked the fact that there were five lives / ships because I needed them. It was also very useful that the ship was very agile, it moved very quickly in response to the controls

The Bad

This game was just too fast and too furious for me. I spent ages trying to complete level 1 and failed. I just could not move or fire fast enough!

Eventually I abandoned the game because I was getting nowhere.

The Bottom Line

This game got great reviews when it was released and even won awards. It is still a good game and if you have nimble fingers you'll probably get a lot more out of this game than I did.
