----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Game: A classic Shoot ' em up, with a lot of Potential and Scope. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Single Player: You can choose between 3 Characters with different strengths. You can upgrade and upgrade your Ship with credits you've Played, and you'll get level Up through playing. You have different Levels of difficulty And 8 different Planets to Play with. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Multiplayer: There is a Local Co-op mode that works very well. You can play with Pad, Mouse or Keyboard for two. However, an Online Mode could still have been. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Graphic: The Graphics are quite good, you can do little. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Music: The Music is quite good, at any time always nicely held to the Level. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Control: The Control is very good with the Gamepad, Optional you can still use Mouse or Keyboard. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Pro/Contra: + Good Control + Good Music + German Surface + Level Editor + Workshop----------------------------------------------------------------- -----------------------------------Conclusion: I am not exactly a Fan of such Games as they are too one-sided for me but nevertheless this is a very good Game with neat Tuning Possibility. If You like Shoot ' em Ups, you can certainly do nothing wrong here. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Summarized: Single Players: 9/10 Multiplayer: 8/10 Graphic: 8/10 Music: 8/10 Control: 10/10------------------------------------------------------ ----------------------------------------------Game: 9/10

At first The Game does not Work, but The support has come back to me very quickly and is trying to reproduce the Error. Top! To the Game: It is a climactic Vertical Shoot ' em Up which is rightly experiencing a kind of Resurrection at the Moment. You Control your Spaceship Over a constantly scrolling Background, along the Way there is a lot of balling: Protected Towers, ships, Other Flying objects. Opponents drop more or less Items that either bring more Money into the Coffers, or reinforce the Weapons or improve the Ship. The collected Credits can be exchanged in the Hangar for better Armament, Armor and Equipment. The Graphics are beautiful and the Colors know to please, not too Colorful, not too Trist. The Ship itself can be controlled in 2 color modes, which must be changed in the Game. The mode has its Advantages with the different enemy types. Therefore, a Change in the game is not only a playful, but makes perfect sense, especially because the Ship in the respective Color can absorb the equally colored of the Opponent (as it seems to me). Pro and Kontra: PRO:-Music underscore very pleasant and not a blunt Techno or something. -Idea of the Schiff-Modie is beautiful and forces the Player to think along and try it out. -Graphic is beautiful and the Colors balanced. -Control is Precise and you get Ruttel feedback on Hits (X360 Controller)-Upgrading the Ship with collected Credits. -Support, total Nice, German Speaking And Ready for Help. Where Bullets Fly, there are also Impacts: Contra:-Opponents often the same, even the Graphic Elements could be more varied from Level to Level, as for example with "R-Type," "RaidenIII." -no Surprise Moments (Emerging Submarines or Gun Towers)-No real Boss fights, seem more like a Medium "Meal" in between. -Sounder effects, irgentie, I do not have the right "Bums" in Explosions such as "Hubris on the then Amiga Computer. Conclusion: Even if Kontra Points are available, this is rather due to small things and should by no means obscure the fact that the Game is good and Fun. If you are worth putting on a good old-School 2D shoot em up, you are in the best Place to use it. Should the small-mindedness be improved into one, hopefully, 2nd Part, the Title will certainly be given even more attention than it has already deserved. Update: 24.11.16 Since then, the Developers have considered AND mended virele KONTRA Points, or even added Parts. exemplary! So the Title gets from me a 4.0 out of 5 Stars
