Ratings and Reviews
Would have been good in the mid 1990’s
The graphics, UI and every thing else about this program reminds me of those early DOS games like Doom. This game is a few decades too late. However, if you like nostalgia….
A DOS Game Reborn
Pretty sad game for this day and age. Cluncky graphics, silly pingy sounds, clumsy UI. A rating of “meh”… then delete.
Not TOO bad
It would be pretty good (for a "lite" version) except for one thing: you can't skip the tutorial messages. Tutorials are fine the first time you play, but you should be able to skip it. Took off a star for that.
Challenge friends and check leaderboards and achievements.
