Description:
This is one mean little horozontal scroller-shooter! Blast the enemy out of your path by any means possible - usually in the guise of military acoutrements such as a missile launching truck and warships helicopters.. whooo hooo! The game is fast and mucho difficult- with the five lives you begin with, soon disappearing within seconds on your first attempt at least.


Object:

Drive and fly along each level and shoot anything that moves is today's criteria... Make it past flying trucks, helicopters and enemy fighter jets to the end of each level and make your way to the exit.

Criticism:
Like most objectives in this genre of game, it sound easy, but....

The levels are short and takes less than a few minutes to complete each stage of the game, however the action is intense and trigger-happy fingers are required throughout. You begin with five lives, which soon hit zero with any lapse in concentration (rather like my bank balance come to think of it).

As soon as you start, you'll realise that jumping and firing (both at helicopters and trucks) require good timing and skill - (within five senonds, you'll have to jump, shoot a helicopter, shoot a ground jeep, and jump over a bridge!

TIP - Let off a couple of ground missiles before you jump, otherwise you'll land on an on-coming truck and explode.

Sound & Graphics:

Big graphics - but not 'chunky', like most large sprites employed in some other game such as Monster Munch etc.

They are extremely well drawn and the game speed is not overly compromised by this, as the game-play is smooth and the action speedy. The animation is also clean and crisp, adding to the atmos.

Sound unfortunately is like a badger farting in a tunnel, and is uniform through each stage.
