This is a truly amazing game. Its loading time of over 22 minutes hint at its length and complexity. The game is of the Defender/Scramble concept and gives you a small plane flying over a changing terrain. The graphic detail of the ground shows factories, cranes, space ships on launching pads, etc. all superbly depicted. The scenario is of you being the good guy Vs the bad guys who have taken over the planet Neoclypse. It is divided into four quadrants and in each quadrant is a number of radar towers, each defended by an enemy ship. Your job is to shoot the ship and duck down between the buildings to blast the radar tower. Normally you are destroyed if you hit the ground. Different levels bring more bad guys per quadrant and later on there are ground-to-air homing missiles.

The long loading time might put some people off, but the game is well put together and is very addictive as it had me playing it for hours. The graphics are amazing, the sound is good and there are quite a lot of options to choose from.
