Your Sinclair (Aug, 1989)
Graphics-wise it's nice, if showing us nothing new, but it demonstrates once again how hard it really is to get an unplayable scrolling shoot ┬┤em up.
Hellfire's a fun shoot-em-up. It's not going to set the arcade world alight, but the fire direction control is novel and it's certainly tough and addictive enough to keep you pouring the coins in for 'one more go'.
Overall, Hellfire is a decent shooter that tried to invigorate the genre with some control tweaking. It didn't work, but you can't blame the developers for trying.
