This game is a real bomb, and it starts magnificently with fireworks, at the time one of the most impressive fx's anyone had seen.
And who cares if the graphics are simple and outdated, who needs fancy graphics when what makes you play a game it's is playability?
Superb action, great sound, the years go by and it's still addictive. You just cant go wrong with this shoot 'em up.
Who needs 'R-Type'?
