An oldie horizontal shooter that is a decent conversion of CAPCOM's arcade game of the same name, although much inferior to console versions e.g. NES and SEGA CD. Not much more to say about this one-- good graphics for its time, cool power-ups, and the obligatory endless waves of enemy ships make for a solid game. Not as fun as, say, Zaxxon, but it pioneers the concept, and paves the way for other shooters to follow. As the game doesn't stand up well with time, it's best to play this for nostalgia only, in a historical context :)
