For me, the most impressive thing about Cyclons was its superb title sequence, complete with 'Star Wars' theme music and moving letters.

The whole package has a professional and smooth presentation to it, which was not really matched by its play value.

'You' are a round green spaceship, armed with a bullet cannon, and the idea is to shoot down the purple saucers and red spinners without being caught in the ensuing explosions or crashing into the terrain below.

Several options are available, including ricochet bullets, terrain below, score rankings and five skill levels.

Graphically impressive, the game suffers a little from lack of variety and as such I can only recommend it to dedicated games players.
