Terra Cresta

Terra Cresta is the sequel to the old coin-op game Moon Cresta by Nitchibutsu, with the computer version by Incentive. Moon Cresta was also a coin-op game, and now Imagine (who used to do Konami stuff) have licensed it.

One of the more complex zap games, Terra Cresta has you flying over an alien landscape shooting at flying aliens as well as the ground installations and pre-historic monsters that wander around. There are also homing missiles to worry about and supply silos that will improve your ship's armament.

All the usual problems and one or two more to think about. Good graphics and animation make this a good game to play, though rather dated in concept.
