Review of 'Phantom F4 I'

A great war shoot 'em up. Like a modern Green Beret played in flip screen, but with less features. You can't use knifes or special weapons, at least that I'm aware, instead you just have a machine gun. Also you can't duck or jump, which would make the game more interesting, instead you catch energy boxes, and other objects along the way, this is more a straightforward shoot 'em up. Graphics, backgrounds, animation all very well drawn. A bit on the easy side but very playable and addictive, A shame it only has one level, I already finished it.
If you have problems in setting the keys, due to the game being written in Slovak, the following may help:

When you see a screen with the words:
-Kempston Stick - press Key K to enable Kempston Joystick
-Ano Nie - press Key N to redefine keys

Translation for the keys:
Hore - Up
Dole - Down
Vlavo - Left
Vpravo - Right
Strelba - Fire

Then press one of the keys you've redefined, except K otherwise it'll set up the Kempston.
