A great conversion of a great arcade game

The Good
The action is fast and furious, with some intricate bad guys, and impressive speed even when loads of them are on the screen.

The range of control options is great, catering for one or two joysticks. Using two is ideal, as you can fire in one direction while moving in another, but it's perfectly playable with one. Better still, with a 4-joystick adapter, 2 players can play simultaneously using 2 joysticks each!

The edge of humour in terms of the prizes and sound samples is great, and adds a real sense of the macabre to the proceedings.

The Bad
It's tough. With one joystick, it'll take a long time before you're getting anywhere - few games have such a torrent of challenges.

The graphics are occasionally a little indistinct, and the sound seems like an afterthought (other than the aforementioned samples)

The Bottom Line
A classic shoot 'em up, converted effectively. It's set as a futuristic game-show at a time when that was a new idea, involving going through a whole batch of arenas shooting out baddies and collecting prizes (for points).

One of the goriest games I've seen.

The Good
If you like'd Mortal Kombat games check this one out. The game is to get through each level not getting killed by the "thousands" of humans and animals and robots you're going to face. There is a boss on each level with some kind of gory effect. For example the first battle, you eventually shoot your enemy so much that his skeleton is showing. Plus their head goes flying off with lots of blood. I'm surprised this didn't get a M rating.

The Bad
This game is "very hard". If you've played Mortal Kombat 3 for SNES, you know hard but this is almost impossible to beat without losing. This is true in the last few rooms.

The Bottom Line
Gory. Very gory. Very hard. If you actually beated the final boss which is the game show host, then you're pretty amazing.
