The best and worst

0 of 0 people found the following review helpful
The anticipation surrounding this game was,for me anyway,snuffed out after at most an hour of playing it, which was a shame because the music was possibly the coolest i ever heard on an amiga game and the graphics as you expect from the bitmaps were well polished and interesting it was just a shame that the gameplay let it down and i think let it down badly.

It was all a little bit too slow, the powerups werent good enough and the ships movement was sluggish.This could have been a classic and in a way i suppose it is, but only superficially because when you scratch the surface it is a very average shooter.
