MANUFACTURER: Atari PLAYERS: 4 STEREO: No RATING: 8 (7.7)
TYPE: Shooter COMLYNX: Yes BLINK: No
WHAT: Shoot everything. I mean EVERYTHING.
HOW : An overhead view scrolling shooter, with the screen scrolling from
top to bottom.The c-pad moves your ship, A fires missiles, and B fires a
laser (which will always shoot at something airborne, doesn't have to be
aimed).The best arrangement seems to be holding the middle of your thumb
down over A, and using the tip to push B when something is on the screen
for the laser, since the laser doesn't auto repeat. This game was
programmed by the same person who did Gates of Zendocon,and has much the
same approach - a wide variety of enemies, a large number of options to
help you blast them, and lots and lots of explosions on the screen.There
are too many enemies and assistance options to list here; you name it, this
game has got it.
SOAPBOX: Well, this game will make your thumb tired. It's pretty hard solo,
but with four players I imagine it would be pretty easy. There's not much
to be said to it because there is no depth - it doesn't profess to be a
thinking game, and it isn't. As the manual says - "Shoot everything that
moves. Shoot everything that doesn't move". Pretty much sums it up.
