In the days when Rtype was not available on the atari, this was one of the rare few shoot em ups, that helped fill the void. The graphics are ok, sound too, game play is above par. The green vector cave level is memorable, collision detection, being unforgivable. Good game.

This game's as slow as treacle. To make things worse, the graphics look like they've been lifted from the ZX Spectrum (i.e. 256x192 detail but low colour resolution) and transferred to the Atari's medium-res mode, without compensating by exploiting per-pixel colour resolution. Result is the worse of both worlds.... look at that ship design, ugh.
Not so smooth and fast paced, but diverse and absorbing. Weapons/bonuses system is bit similiar to amiga's Project X.
|Includes three versions:|
- cracked executable with trainer
- original tape image / version "A"
- original tape image / version "B"
It is difficult to know whether release "A" or "B" came first. The game appears to be 100% the same but the cassette files are different.
