P.O.D. Proof Of Destruction

Pod is a fast moving, colourful, difficult, exciting shoot 'em up. There, I've finished my review. Well, what more can I say? That's what the blurb says. I can't harp on about alien rulers wanting to rule this, that or the other, or your endless quest of the orb of whatever. Dum de dum. I'm getting paid for this you know. Oh, all right, I'll tell you a bit more. Pod is, in a word, psychedelic, (very) is all the Minter hallmarks but it isn't. The background is the long scrolling mass of colours. You fly a little pod around a grid, and nasties quickly fly down from the top very smoothly. You move very quickly and the rain of fire is astounding. Looks nothing much but well worth digging out for a couple of hours entertaining alien blasting.

Overall Summary

Jeff Minter at his best - except it's not Minter's doing.
