IntoTheVerticalBlank - 03/07/2022
A Taito Arcade conversion. Choose between music or SFX, The music is quite good. This is a DIFFICULT and kind of drab looking Vertical shooter, The scrolling is quite good, but your ship is equipped with no shields and one hit cheapies abound in this game world. Collect the stars left when you shoot enemy and the next power up will highlight in the bottom display when you can add it, Press the space bar to add them to your ship, but be warned, that pressing of the space bar will mean taking you hand from the joystick and inevitably you will get shot down. If you are careful and collect enough power and you can play for a while, but it will take practice getting there. A nice diversion, but there are much better games of this type to play on the ST. Get a cheat and it might be more fun to see where it all goes. Hint: get the speed up and side weapons as fast as you can and hold on for ear life.
