Stainless Steel is a great shoot 'em up. It has got very good graphics, excellent sound, and on top of that, a lot of playability - it's addictive, too. One thing that niggles me is the fact that when you die, the game takes you right back to the beginning of that level. Minor quibbles apart, Ricky Steel's first game is an excellent blast-the-enemy production, and he stands a good chance of becoming a real super hero if this standard is kept up.
The graphics are good especially the screen scrolling which is exceptionally smooth as is the animation of the aliens, my favourite being the helicopters. Once you have completed the game at the easiest level then you can up the stakes and fight more and faster aliens at the three higher levels.
If you like shooty games and can be fagged to persist, then this is as good a game as any I suppose. But in the originality of game play stakes this ranks alongside most of the best budget games. Which would be fine if it was a budget game. Sorry, Ricky. I wasn't so easily impressed.
