Review of 'Phantis'

Rating:4 User: The Dean of Games

1987 Dinamic Software (Spain)
by Carlos Abril and Javier Cubedo

I think 'Phantis' plays a little better than the prequel 'Game Over'. It's evident that the programmers took notice of some of the errors in the prequel and tried to correct them. The game plays smoother, the graphics are less confusing with less colour clashing and the action is a bit more player friendly.
I still prefer 'Game Over' over 'Phantis' just because it was a game I used to play in the 80's, although I never fancied it much, but it's clear to me that 'Phantis' despite not original, is better.
