Summary

Obscure

The Good

One of a bunch of semi-obscure shareware hits, this is an old-school, vertically-scrolling shoot-em-up. The graphics and sound are so-so, but the gameplay shines, being just hard enough to present a challenge whilst not being too hard to play. The power-up structure (basically, more bullets) is simple and effective.

The Bad

On the other hand, it's an ancient shareware game, and it might be quite hard to register it (if you can't find a registered copy). Furthermore, there were other, better games at the time - 'Tyrian' for example.

The Bottom Line

Fast-moving, 'Galaga'-esque five-minute fun blaster from prehistory.
