Megalomaniac - 01/10/2022
Phenomenal. Not only superb gameplay with varied enemy waves and an interesting power up system (having 'bad' tokens to avoid in the heat of gameplay is an unusual twist), but also a technical marvel - pushes the ST close to its limits while also exploring the STe's potential before most people did. Proof that, for vertically scrolling shooters at least, the ST could match that other computer.

Console quality shooter. Graphics, sound and gameplay all awesome. You'd be happy to show this shooter to your Mega Drive and SNES owning friends.

Gameplay wise the best shooter on the ST - technically Lethal Xcess is better.

WoD is still a marvellous blast - go grab it if you can!

This game was outstanding. Smooth scrolling, Digisound lots of sprites, no slowdowns.
Great presentation and graphics.
