Pros & Cons
Pros: This is a vertical shooter in the vein of rFighter or Phoenix. All the Roswell missions are excellent. Graphics and animation are smooth as silk. Great retro War Of The Worlds theme. This game is mostly fun to play.
Cons: The first four Apollo missions are awful. Graphics and animation for this part of the game are dated at best and absolutely no fun whatsoever. Once you get past these opening missions things improve considerably. The options menu while appreciated needs an update. The biggest issue however is that the game crashes. Please fix these issues and I will increase my score.
Conclusion: While this game has issues, if you are a fan of vertical shooters you could certainly do worse.
