Awk! What a horrible game!

The Good
Much like American Laser Games's other games, such as Mad Dog McGee or The Last Bounty Hunter, this is a horrible arcade conversion of a simple yet fun shooter game. Therefore, much like the afforementioned games, there is absolutely NOTHING GOOD ABOUT THESE GAMES.

The Bad
Much like other American Laser Games titles, the video implementation here is simply horrible, the controls suck and the acting is truly terrible. The premise is not very interesting either and the fighting scenes are simply lame.

The Bottom Line
A no-good game anyone in his right mind would stay away from.
