Spectrum 2.0

Review of 'Zybex'

Rating:5 User: Alessandro Grussu

Great budget horizontally scrolling shoot-em-up where... you don't actually shoot, the fire key is used to change from 4 possible type of weapons.

Your character moves around the screen shooting waves after waves of enemies and avoiding obstacles. Destroying a wave of enemies gives you a token which will be used to reinforce one of your weapons. I reckon it does not sound very original, but the large and pretty detailed graphics and the slick, fast gameplay make up for that. This is also one of the very few Spectrum games of this kind where two people can play simultaneously. For its price, Zybex is a real bargain.
