Review By Lempkee

Presentation: Well this is the very first game i met with a CYPRUS HILL kinda music style, pretty neat and fits the opening of the game while the blood floods the screen. Nice and Clean menu system with,but missing some crucial options.

The point?: When u start the game u get the option to select your charecter ,wich reminds me alot of "GOLDEN AXE/sega 1990" ,not a bad idea and its well animated.

When u start playing your first comment will be - WHAT A BAD CONTROL SYSTEM - but infact it aint as bad as u may think due to its in your hands /fingers within a few minutes.

When u have learned the controlls and managed to move the charecters properly , then u will see the glory of the game, its a mix of a normal shoot em up,but only in 3d perspective view ala like whizz ,shadow lands,shadow worlds and Escape from the planet of the robot monsters etc.

Your quest is more or less just to wipe out all enemies in thegame and try to find as many bonuses (and levels) as possible, there is no such thing as weapon upgrades wich is sad.

The game:

Basically very clean and nice gfx (aga) and easy strutured levels ,so u will learn all of First the levels pretty fast , it have some big END OF LEVEL bosses wich is not too hard nor easy, u can play 2 players at the same time wich is a nice treat, but your girlfriend doesnt wanna play this game ;( (atleast not mine)

after level 2 all gets a way bit wicked , with superb elevatorscenes and underwater levels , 
and the enemies change alot so there is really not much to say the game is too SIMMILAR all the way.

What do i think?:

hehe well i love this game,its cool and it have a nice "attitude" , but it have some glitches wich is really annoying (ending up with my joypad in 2 pieces or more), if this game had been abit better on the controlls and not getting too hard on level 5 then this would have rocked alot more.

But this game is one of the few to work as smooth as this , ignore the rest of theese games unless you are really into 3d perspektive games (ala popoplus etc) , but this is action and its shoot em up and its for CD32 and it have AGA GFX.

Well worth a try, but if u dont like it! then u should try it abit more till u can handle it , if u dont then BIN IT!
