Review:

Clearly inspired by the Berserk arcade machine (no bad thing) this game went one better by having several types of alien and brick walls to be blasted through. The graphics were not great even when it was released but they served their purpose. Gameplay is still top notch and the difficulty is well paced. This was the first of many great games from Costa Panayi.
