Fantastic shoot-em-up. I think its even better than R-Type. The ships movements are very fluid and steady and the two-way initial firing challenges the player to get more accurate. The graphics could have been a bit bigger in my opinion, they look a bit cartoonish and take a bit off drama. The ship's firing sound is also a bit of a letdown, resembling the beeps of BASIC games. Anyway Zynaps is one of the best shooters out there.
