Spawn Of Evil

Deep in space alien spawn are going through a complex multi-stage breeding process, before maturing into their full attack potential. Your task is to break this cycle and so save yourself.

There are two screens - a long range scan in which the approximate position of the Spawn can be determined, and a short range window in which there is a sight to line up the aliens and destroy them. Two types of weapon are available - a short but accurate single blast, or a shower of less accurate fireballs.

The action is smooth and fast - often too fast. The idea of the game is pretty original, which coupled with the excellent graphics makes for a visually exciting game and one which is well worth playing.
