Wow what a strange game this is. We got the classic Ikari Warriors but IN SPACE! The graphics are improved, though I am still hesitant to call them good. The gameplay is essentially the same as the previous game except all of the sprites are larger and the whole game moves a big faster. Gamplay-wise it’s unremarkable and there is a ton of flicker.
What is remarkable is all the silly stuff in here like the voice samples! The strange space cantinas which look like they are right out of star wars in which you can challenge random aliens to a duel for “hearts” which I can only assume is money… Don’t even get me started and that strange skeet-shooting mini game. There is just so much strange variety it’s hard to get frustrated.
Of all the Ikari games I think this one is the most fun, mostly just from the novelty factor.
