Fast-paced but incredibly generic shooter, only the weapon system stands out and that just because the powerups, coming in several different colors, weave wildly across the screen, making them almost impossible to dodge (as you would have to do if you wanted to keep your current weapon).
Oh another standout: the game moves at a pretty snappy pace, albiet with some sprite flicker, and it seems to love nothing better than to shoot an enemy ship on to the screen, possibly from behind you, all the way to the other side at high speed, probably crashing in to you in the process since there is no time to dodge or even see it coming. Bosses like to dart across the screen sudden-like too.
Speaking of boss battles, your ship may face to the left if the boss gets behind you, but only in boss battles. Curious.
