Yep this is very hardcore and very oldschool, to the point of being an over active strictly timed geometry puzzle - you'll be constantly searching for the right jump hights, shooting angles and run timings to get through this totally artificial obstacle course in Lo-Fi. They took all the worst from the outdated and brilliantly reintroduced it!

Да, это очень сложный и стародавний по своей стилистике платформенный пострел, иногда и вовсе оборачивающийся в гиперактивную головоломку наперегонки с программой по совмещению геометрических фигур - ибо мы тут только и делаем, что выискиваем нужные углы ведения огня, высоту прыжков и паузы, чтобы преодолеть совершенно искусственную полосу препятствий в низком разрешении. Взяли все худшее из устаревшего и вновь воплотили с блеском!

It's very similar to Contra on the NES.
If you liked that you'll probably like this too, otherwise this game might feel a bit old-fashioned.
It's more forgiving than Contra though, so that's nice.

Well worth the cheap admission price IMO.

1/10 - jettisoned it

How retro-fantastic do the screens look! How gloriously NES-like does the ingame footage look!

Unfortuately the controls are unreliable and wonky and the extremly hard (and some times straigth-out unfair) difficulty is only there to mask how incredibly short the game actually is.

People keep saying that this game is trying to be like Contra, but personally, for some reason this feels more like megman to me. Except you can't charge up the buster, and you can get new weapons instead of having to defeat bosses to obtain them. Fun enemy designs, NES styled enviornments and gameplay, although with some artificial difficulty in the later levels, and a Rockin' soundtrack. Great job Sinclair! Oh, wait, it actually is a little like Contra. Contra themed stages, Contra themed bosses, and enemies. But if it was Contra, you'd be able to shoot in almost every direction. Still, Great Job Sinclair!
