***** by termin8r. Comment: "I first palyed this game religiously in 1984 while attending tech. It had smooth moving graphics(for its time)and it was extremely addictive. Perhaps only for people who were active shootemup gamers then will appreciate it. I have it on the psx and on mame emulator and they are identical. Having some difficulty attaing walkthrough/maps as I am sure there were many more hidden popup land and waterbased extra points and flags(extra life) later in the game when all hell breaks loose that I never found.
