Game Introduction

The game is good looking graphically but features a jerky looking scrolling background. It's quite tough to play and looks more like a 1990's shoot-em-up than a late 80's game. It's a small sized PCB, approximately six inches square, and features a large number of Konami custom chips, similar in look to "Rush 'n' Attack." The digitized speech, apart from 'congratulations', is really hard to understand.

MX 5000 KLOV/IAM 5 Point User Score: 0.00 (0 votes)
