Ratings and Reviews

Oh yes!! Where have I been? Still needs tweaks


I first discovered this game back in 1995 at my karate school. Once in awhile one of the teachers let us play some games in the night class (usually the strict one was either near boot camp training us or in there playing games all the time so....) and this was one of them.

Later in 1997 I discovered this towards the end of 8th grade computer class towards the end of the marking period. So I played it a lot there since our teacher taught us everything he had planned.

Then in spring of 1998 I found out that my cousin had this game on his computer and played it there because it was so fun. Only his version had different music.

I managed to download this on my PC using an emulator back in 2011 because I loved it so much.

And just now I found it on the iPad.

My only problems with the game:
-I'd have a pause button where your weapons are so you can go into your inventory and select the desired weapon and then continue play. I once or twice in a game accidentally activate a weapon which isn't good.
-have a second music option although I really like the main one "flight of the (Patriots or parrots)" I think the other one is "techno" (my cousin likes that one)
-once every three or four games the game crashes
-wish you could use the classic graphics (I think your ship getting blown to bullets was cooler than it is now)
-wish no advertising.
-Willing to pay $0.99, $1.99, $2.99, $3.99 for each to all of these bonus features.



Constantly crashes. I'll be right in the middle of a level and it cuts out. Had my highest score yet and the app crashed and lost it. Super frustrating.

Great game!!


I loved the original, and I love this version of it. An extremely well-designed iteration of a fantastic game. There are some slight idiosyncrasies in the controls that took a bit of getting used to, but with a little bit of practice, I'm about as smooth as I was on the computer keyboard. Thanks, developer!
