Remake of a classic game exploring space

This game is easy to play. It's a way to pass time if you have nothing to do at home or at the office. There are 3D graphics, but they are in a cartoon form. This makes the game somewhat childish, but there is a goal while playing. If you can't complete the goal, you will die. One thing that you have to keep in mind is patience. Your targets are not going to just come at you. In order to shoot your enemies, you will have to sit and wait for them to appear in your line of action.

There are very little special effects or sounds in the game. The simplicity is what makes the game fun and engaging. There are several circuits that are divided into multiple levels. Although there are numerous levels, many of the designs are full of holes, which can prevent you from getting farther in the game at times. Obstacles and blocks will try to stop your ship from moving. They will also hinder the other ships around you from advancing. Your reflexes must be fast, and you need to be on your toes when your enemies are in front of you. It could mean the difference between getting to the next level or getting your ship destroyed. You also have to be able to calculate the ratio between speed and your fuel. When you increase the speed of your ship, it will quickly deplete the fuel level. One of the disadvantages is that you have a time limit to complete the levels. This is a game that you can play if you want to reflect on older arcade games.

Pros

  • Passes the time
  • Colorful
  • Challenges the reflexes

Cons

  • Levels can be boring
  • Details could be enhanced
