The title screen (and the *oversized* box that the disk came in) gives a misleading impression of what the game is. I thought it was going to be sort of like a Western -- a shoot 'em up, but in a space setting. But instead, it's just a game of timing and reflexes as you guide the Space Cowboy while trying not to be hit by shots. You don't do anything else. The other thing what bugged me is that this wasn't even written in machine language, but compiled BASIC! Lastly, what I remember most about the game is the quality of the floppy disk it came on: some generic, single density thing. I barely had the game for maybe a week, and the disk would no longer completely boot. I couldn't even format the disk to use for myself because it was damaged in some way!
