A game that should be remembered more fondly that it seems to be. A lot poor magazine reviews hide the fact that Gremlin had created quite a nice ST 8-bit+ console game here. The colors are saturated in that early Amstrad to ST conversion way, but the action is furious, the scrolling is fast, and the music and SFX are great. It certainly is worth a 2nd look and one I'll be going back to play more. You start out with robotic arm as your only weapon and the deaths come cheap and fast. Once you get the hang of it, it becomes a blast to play and you get better weapons.

Quite posibly this is one to take a second look at. fIt has all the trappings of an Amstrad port to the ST...but the Speed of the ST makes this a really fun game with good grahics, sound, games play...and some cheap deaths. 8bitchip has a good cheat version.

That's one game i kept coming back to. Although i found it quite hard, and not very fun. Go Figure.
