Nice retro shooter with some very nice graphics for the time.
I was browsing the bargain bin at a local video game store and I came across a few older mac games. I will be reviewing them all but I decided to start with this one first as it is the first one that I have finished. This is a nice overhead view shooter/action game developed by Starplay. It features some pretty neat graphics (although a bit dated by todays standards) and a rockin soundtrack (quite amazing even compared to todays more advanced games).
The basic story is that you are scientist who was murdered by an AI computer and is now somehow recreated inside a computer world. You have to get through the game to beat the AI that killed you by beating the games twenty levels. The game features some interesting levels and gameplay elements as well as some puzzle elements to keep the intensity up. For example, many secret doors and mazes are within each level so you cant just blast your way from one end of the level to the next in a linear path.
Overall this is a fun action game with some thinking elements and I recommend it to anyone looking for some old school fun. I do wish the game supported a gamepad though as the keyboard will cause finger cramping pretty fast. Check this game out if you can still find it.
