Sideways scrolling shoot 'em ups may be flavour of the month again, but this re-released cheapie didn't get my raspberries rippling. I scream every time I see it now.

This game doesn't even warrant a budget status as all it consists of is a ship which you can move up or down the left side of the screen and wave after wave of pretty boring aliens to zap. As far as playing goes, I found that you could kill most of the waves by just sitting in one place with the fire button down. Yawn!
