For once I agree with the description of the game on the inlay, a fast-moving, super smooth high resolution shoot-em-up game.

Waves of Firebirds swoop and dance in formation while continually dropping bombs. As if this isn't enough, along come the Blue Weavers with their beams of destruction, followed by the White Bombers. I'm not sure about these White Bombers, because they didn't drop any bombs, but you have to continually dodge them. Finally, along comes the mothership.

The graphics animation is very good, and the game is very playable, though I didn't find it addictive.
