Punks rool OK, and we all know what punks hate the most don't we (no not Maxie Bygraves), yes that's right. They hate deviants and they've just found out that there's one left. So off goes Spike the Mutoid who's mission it is to travel through the anti-matter curtain and kill the deviant. He takes with him six weapons. (Oh no, not Nemesis again.) As I was saying, he takes with him six weapons: normal left/right bullets, left/right lasers, up/down bullets, bouncing bombs, random direction bullets and invisibility shields. Cor grandad, thassalot innit! Still, it's all necessary because the playing area is huge and there is an infinite number of nasties, so it should keep yer busy for while.

This is an excellent game on budget.

Overall Summary

Good in its time, now it's even better as a re-release. Quite a smart blast and well worth digging out.
