To make a Phoenix conversion this good on a VCS is pretty amazing. A playable, accurate and very enjoyable port!
Like Asteroids and some other Games on the System, a Title I always come back to...
The fast-paced Gameplay and the Boss-enemy at the End keep it interesting, using the Shield gives a (very tiny) bit of Strategy. A Classic, and better than the Arcade-Version in my Opinion!
Good for endless Hours of Fun!
Possibly the single best translation of an arcade original onto the 2600. Fantastic game play, faithful to the standup game to the degree possible. In my top-5 for sure.
Quite a good Space Invaders style game, even reminds of Galaga... The enemies are nicely designed, it's challenging but fair.
However one thing ruins it completely: The damn noise! What's that supposed to be? Birds twittering? The spaceship's engines? Air raid sirens?
a great game , with fantastic graphic for this year
a must for this machine
Great conversion of the arcade game. Very hard in the later levels. I wish they were crows I was shooting at though...
