Summary

An enjoyable little game overlooked by time

The Good

The replay value is high. The vector graphics really have an appeal that you don't get on most games. The levels are challenging and will keep you busy, and of course it uses digitized voices which was very advanced for 1983.

The Bad

The controls take some time to get used to. Not much changes from level to level except more enemies.

The Bottom Line

This was a game that was truly ahead of it's time. It is a trip back to the past and is a hidden gem from the Golden Age of Gaming. It's easily on par with some of the great games that came out on the 2600 and is really an overlooked game on an underrated console. A must for any Vectrex owner!
