Take one helicopter and a jeep, mix in a truckload of fast and furious enemies and what do you get?
(A rather strange car fun of Arsenal and Tottenham supporters and one huge fan on the roof -Ed)
No, actually it's Silkworm.
A stonking good shoot 'em up that stands the test of time well, Silkworm takes place in a futuristic nuclear free zone where XR3is and SRis are longer in vogue and jeep mounted blasters and helicopter mounted blazers are all the rage. The Jeep can shoot in two directions, forward and above. The helicopter has a similar spec except it's angled cannon shoots downwards.
The action is fast and furious. In two player mode one person controls the chopper and the other the Jeep. In single player mode it plays like lightning. The graphics are well drawn and although the sound isn't Jean Micheal Jarre, the sheer blast 'em up quality of Silkworm makes it well worth a look at.

Pure shoot 'em up action in land or airborne form. A very fast shoot 'em up with lots of action and lastability. You won't put it down 'till you've finished.
