Always thought this game was actually quite good, if you waited a few minutes on the title screen, pressed reset then the game would play with the music continuing. cracking tune, I have my 800xl rigged into a pro logic cinema amp and sounds totally brill.

At first I had the same opinon as Dan, but now I have been playing this game the last few days, and I think it is still a cool game!

After the complete 6x3 zones the game is finished, so that is a goal on it's own.

As a Kid I had this game on tape. It looks good. Controls are a bit 'slow' and the shooting is sometimes not accurate. At this moment the game has 5.2/10 ... I think that is too low. I'd give this game a 7.

Nice parallax scrolling! The game itself, though, is unplayable - the ship is stupidly slow and quite massive, making it nearly impossible to dodge enemy fire.

The music is a rather terrible cover of the Sanxion soundtrack on the C64.

Gameplay was quite dull, although the parallax scrolling was quite nicely done. But it's worth playing just for the music...!
