What a pity there is no joystick option in this otherwise well-written program where all user inputs are via the C, E, L and + keys.
With ten screens of nasties, all of which will both amuse and amaze you, your task is to steer a space ship through the atomsphere of some distant galaxy. Armed with an unusual multi-coloured instrument, looking for all the world like an Inter-Galactic Thermic Lance, you must destroy the hordes of aliens. Each hit scores points on an incrementing scale, depending upon how far into the game you have survived. There are three levels of play from which to choose.
The well-designed top ten scoreboard and the ability to 'hold' the action any any moment, are both desirable ingredients in such an addictive game.
The concept is not original but the format of this high speed arcade game, with superb colour graphics and an extensive use of the Amstrad's powerful sound facilities, allied to the abiity to fire-on-the-run, make it a game apart from all others. Highly recommended.
