This game is actually a shoot-em-up game more inline with Galaga than it is with a run and gun game like Contra. Even though that is completely obvious it actually took me a little bit to get to the realization. That being said, the game is a very competent shmup with a refreshing setting. Thankfully even your basic gun (2 guns) provides some decent firepower and dynamic firing arc. You actually use 2 buttons to fire. The left button firing to the left, the right to the right and holding both together fires upward.
Although there seems to be a lack of cool guns and upgrades in the game, there is a fair variety of enemies. I also like how barrels., sandbags and various piles of junk act as barricades to put you into the setting. I have a feeling that this is one of those games that loops forever, I hope it isn’t. I guess it doesn’t matter much anyway because I would probably never beat it even if I had it.
