I had collected this 5200 version at first, before realizing the model 800 home computer version has better title screens with tutorial added.
A fun game for one or two players, and it works in coop mode or versus mode -- at the players' discretion.
But I sure wish they'd not used port 2 for the one-player version. What a hassle, on every system it came out for!
i would change the 1,2(alt) to 1,2(sim)
because it is 1 vs 2 or cooperative
i think its the only non sport game where both players play simultaneously or course some could say hunting is a sport
this is very close to the arcade version and being that it was the first game you could be competitive with the second player or be cooperative meaning that you can shoot your friend in the back and watch them die
the game designers were a bit weird though as they made the game you press start on a one player game on controller 1 you have to use the joystick in port 2 being that the yellow guy is on the right so it makes sense to have him be on the right side of the system
so that makes player 2 actually player one
so either make sure you have 2 working controllers or always select a 2 player game and let that zombie player take some of the heat off
make sure you select the setting with lots of men case the worlings like to cheap shot you every chance they get
keep an eye on the radar screen to know if the invisible buggers are coming around a corner
autofire would be nice but like with space invaders somehow your gun knows that one of its bullets is still flying and wont fire another till it is expended
the way it bugs out when you shoot the wizard was really intense the sound is great the graphics are arcade spot on (short of the little sparklies everywhere)
