Review:

I'm going to keep this review short and sweet. Basically this game is a very bog standard shoot 'em up. It is absolutely nothing you haven't seen before, and there are much better examples of it on the Neo Geo. Gameplay wise you pick from one of three characters (they have different craft that are different speeds), and you get a selection of weapons (see above), then you start the game and just continually hold down the fire button until the game is complete. Thats about all folks. There isn't any real strategy apart from that, and not much imagination has gone into making this game. It just feels like every other old shoot 'em you've played.

Graphically, this is very average, and nothing special at all to speak of - it is very bland and boring... and the music? "TECHNO, TECHNO, TECHNO" is what you should expect. If you have a bizarre love of early nineties bands like 2 Unlimited then you will probably like it. Not all the music is techno style, but most of it is; I guess it does suit the game fairly well though. It is quite decent for the Neo Geo's sound chip I have to say. The sound effects on the other hand are very bland, uninspired and instantly forgettable.

Maybe I am being a little too hard because its not terrible (certainly not the worst game on Neo Geo like many people on IRC have said), its just that there are much better shooters available than this. For example, if you want a real challenge, try the superb Pulstar, or my personal favourite Blazing Star. Even the Last Resort, which is another old game is much better than this. I suppose this would pass as decent entertainment in an arcade for five minutes, just nothing more.
