Fun game, and one interesting tidbit in 80's movie history, this is the game Wormser was playing in Revenge of the Nerds when they were doing the rollcall in the gym.

another "Star Castle" inspired shooter, which is a good thing. Think "Star Island" and "Yars' Revenge", but this Alpha Shield is much more varied in how difficulty increases. Top notch arcade sound fx. Author "David Lubar" did great things: Hacker, Master Of The Lamps, Ultima IV, Alpha Shield, and more. This one's a cartridge!

Not a bad game per se, but it DOES have some trippy sound effects. Give it a try.

Unfortunately, it seems that those games for the 2600 have come back to haunt me. While Alpha Shield is decent, it would fare much better on the 2600 where such games are really needed.
The object of Alpha Shield is to destroy Alpherian Military... [more]
