Review (Electron User)
If you're one of these shady characters who can go into a pub or amusement arcade and lose yourself for hours in a Space Invaders or Galaxians game, then this should be right up your street. There are fast and slow levels - and you take your pick according to how big-headed you feel. Then launch into the fray.
You are a lone, ground-based, tank-like vehicle fighting squadron of aircraft, all intent on sending you to the big electron cloud in the sky. The skill lies in dodging the bombs and the descending bombers, who have no fear of ramming you. At the same time you are trying to shoot them down. But to add insult to intended injury once you've annihilated one squadron another more challenging one is ready to take its place.
This is not the most original game in the world, but it is certainly well done. The action is fast and furious with more than adequate sound and graphics. If you are looking for a classic game to test your nerve and reactions this is for you.
