Fine top-down dual-analog shooter with co-op mode for two-player fun. You burn your way through level after level of alien-infested space-stations, rescuing humans the aliens have gooed up in little pod things before time runs out on the time bomb you planted at the beginning of the stage (nice scorched-earth tactic there). Some of the aliens even look like the aliens from Aliens, howsabout that? Big impressive boss fight after each stage, too.
Uses RenderWare but the graphics are actually quite good for a Sega Ages release, and the music is a minimalist but fitting sci-fi grunge type of thing.
The game is nice about auto-saving and storing top scores, combo shots, etc. The weapons you find scattered around pack a nice punch, and once you've got a hearty weapon and a couple options going, you are an impressive 360-degree alien-killing machine.
