|Futuristic Ikari Warriors-style top-down shooter, except that you're playing through largish maps in which you can run around in any direction--no forced scroll.|
The mazelike maps have lots of traps, and like to spring enemies on you without warning. I don't remember finding that you could strafe, which is something of a significant drawback in games like this.
Other than that, it seemed okay for what it is. Looks a bit dated now.
