Hop into the cockpit of your fighter and take down a virtual network that has evolved a little too much for its own good in this shoot ‘em up from Bikkuri Software. It offers non-stop action and a bullet grazing mechanic that forces you to risk life and limb to boost your score while unleashing devastating attacks. The 16-bit style of the visuals and audio offers a nice blast from the past for fans of the genre, but even newcomers can ease into the action thanks to a practice mode and selectable difficulty settings. The game is a little short for our liking and the style might not appeal to everyone, but if you enjoy a good shoot ‘em up you can do far worse than this one.
Gameplay: Being forced to skirt dangerously close to bullets instead of simply avoiding them makes for a frantic experience.
Graphics: The 16-bit visual style is charming, but might not appeal to those who didn’t grow up with the genre.
Sound: The soundtrack is good, but the sound effects lack a little punch
