Spectrum 2.0

Review of 'Pheenix'

Rating:4 User: Juan F. Ramirez

A very good conversion of the arcade classic Phoenix. 5 levels of pure shooter facing bloody waves of robot scout birds, war birds, asteroid belts and finally the heavily guarded flagship, where you must destroy the defensive system and kill the alien queen to save the earth.

It was difficult to find a decent game among the large amount of unofficial conversion of arcades back in the early years of the Spectrum, but this time Martin Ward and Megadodo made a great game (with a crap tune too!), a true addictive shooter with the right level of difficulty.
