Here's a new game on an old theme that should get the blood racing again! Away with the namby-pamby arcade/adventures! For zap-happy arcade freaks Incentive's new Moon Cresta will revive the good old rainy days spent hurling ten penny pieces into the maw of a dedicated arcade machine. This is a loving (and official) recreation of the Nichibutsu arcade original, right down to the attract mode with a colourful title page and a message reading, 'Moon Cresta - A trip to the Space War - Try it Now! - You can get a lot of Fun and Thrills!' The major change between this, the first ever home computer version, and the original is the panel allowing you to select between the redefinable keyboard controls and joystick options.
Good shoot 'em up games are difficult to find these days, mainly because most companies have booted their aliens into orbit.
Incentive, however, has only just made it back from the Mountains of Ket, and do not know about such things. The company has just brought out a passable version of Moon Cresta.
Moon Cresta is an officially licensed copy of the same name arcade game, and as you'd expect, it includes all the main features of the original. If you've never seen it (which pubs did you misspend your youth in? - Ed.), the basic idea is just for a change, to zap aliens.
