The descriptions available on appshopper for this game are spot on: “intense” “thriller” “thumping” “overdrive”. Sounds like a high blood pressure cocktail and indeed it is. I liked this game the first time I played it–indeed, I felt the surge of intense thrilling thumping overdrive. I put it down for a few months, and when I came back to it, it wasn’t so much that any more. More like frantic and hopeless. Was it just that I was a little older? A little wiser? A little less willing to get blisters on my thumbs from the duel stick controllers? Maybe so.

Survival Score: Good for a couple hours of stress-on-a-stick
