I don't think this is the worst game ever released, but boy is it bad! The gameplay is terrible, very badly written, the ship's speed is incredibly hard to control, almost random, I know that when you hit something speed decreases, but not this way, this way just makes no sense. Also shoting something or catching an object like a star is a pain, because everything happens too fast and in a small portion of space between our ship and the coming objects. Some players may argue about the effects some levels can have on your eyes, it didn't do nothing to me, but I guess after long minutes of playing it can be hard on the eyes, mind you this is just on the first 2 levels, then things "normalize". Didn't the folks at Domark test the game first? Oh, now I get it, it's a conversion of a very popular game from the arcade$...
