Game #1995
Rotox  
Action   Vertical shooter

Rotox is a fun top-down shoot'em up with decent 3D/bitmap graphics. Your objective: navigate the Cyborg Class 2-A over the platforms while dodging and shooting the deadly machine-enemies. Don't fall off the platforms or the tricky passages; they are sliding through space! What sets the game apart from other top-down shooters is that the landscape is fully rotoscoped, i.e. you can rotate 360 degrees around the polygonal 3D landscape. Quite nice, but the novelty wears out after a while, leaving you with an average shooter with some good ideas, but nothing truly spectacular to draw you in. An okay mixture of pure shooting action, with some skill elements thrown-in. Worth a try, although I doubt few arcade fans will find it fun enough to persevere to finish all nine levels.
