One of the best top-down shooters ever made, but also one of the least known due to lack of distribution, Baryon takes you on a cruise through alien-infested territory as you collect power-ups and shoot everything in sight. Gameplay is fast-paced shooting action, presented with attractive graphics and an endless variety of enemies. With an assortment of power-ups similar to those found in Raiden, your screen can quickly fill up with enemy fire and explosions. Quick maneuvering to avoid enemy fire will be essential to successfully reaching the big bad boss that usually resides at the end of the level. |
Baryon may not have the sharper graphics found in today's arcade games, but the action and the power-up bonuses make it worthwhile and enjoyable. With great gameplay and solid graphics (and even a good soundtrack) that rival the best of commercial shooters, Baryon is a must have for all action fans. Thumbs up!
