Well, I'll be honest with you, this game is NOT for everyone. Although arcade lovers will apreciate the simplicity of the game, the average user will get bored within the first 5 minutes of the game. I am an arcade lover (especially space-arcade games) and I found the game to be ok.

First of all,you have to like this game for what it is: a simple arcanoid style game, and all you need is to know is how to click and move a mouse. Unfortunatelly there are some programming glitches (windowed mode won't work under windows vista), but when you get past them, you're on a fast paced action game.

The storyline is one of the strong things on this game and it's quite simpe: Nothing! It takes you directly into a space invaders theme and you start shooting and killing stuff.

Music is a rock 80's-heavy guitars mix and kinda reminds me the guys that are stucked in the 80's rock scene (if you have seen the movie "school of rock", you know what I mean). This is 2009, and with the capabilities that the music software is giving, music is just shamefull.

Graphics are what you expect for a game like this: simple and 80's arcade-style with a touch of the late 90's style (some blasting and explosion effects), but they could have been a lot better using special effects like the physix capabilities (like the game trine).

The game has a good price though and that's one of the huge pros, since they may be a few that will like it, but they will buy it.


If you are an arcade lover, you will have some fun on this game. If not within 5 minutes you will propably prey for someone to give you a strong slap in the head.
