Guardian II: Revenge Of The Mutants

Classic shoot-'em-up action straight from the oldest arcade machines! Guardian II is a space invader game featuring a fast horizontally scrolling landscape as you attempt to rescue people stranded on the ground. This kind of gameplay was all the rage in the early days, similar to the excellent Scramble type games.

Graphically it's very simplistic: small aliens fly about each level shooting tiny bullets at you - so tiny you can easily mix them up with the starry background! One thing that annoys me is the keys the programmer has chosen to control the game, they're impossible! It's even worse on joystick!

Guardian II is highly addictive: one for arcade freaks everywhere. A word of advice though, read the instructions first: in my first game I started to massacre all the earth people - they weren't too pleased!
