Review:The loading screen is misleading as this is a vertical scrolling shooter. It uses push scrolling to move a block at a time, rather than the more common pixel level movement.
This is understandable as it features a colourful backdrop and there can be quite a few objects on screen at any one time. Another nice touch is that there is some variety to the enemy, including ones that move across and down rather than just straight down.
The sounds are limited to low volume beeps, which is a good feature. It does have a complicated keyboard layout and, other than its technical achievements, the pacing is very pedestrian and lacking in real excitement.
