This game is nothing short of amazing! You play as Apollo on a mission to save his captured girlfriend. It's a well put together Vertical shooter where you get to battle Greek Mythology style enemies. You can charge up your shot to take out stronger enemies as well as a health meter to take up to four hits before you loose a life. The game gives you plenty of lives and continues to practice each level. Upon using a continue the game is generous enough to start you right back at the checkoint

REALLY tough game...That being said, I still love it! The graphics are very colorful, with large beautiful sprites. The sound effects and music, combined with solid, simple controls round it out. You only use one fire button, but that's all this game needs to be good! Who knew that a flying horse works just as well as a futuristic space ship!

This game was hard as balls for me as a kid. Still challenging today... SPEED UP SPEED UP OPTION! I loved being on a flying horse, that was enough to encourage me to play. One day I'll beat it.. Is it weird that I can smell my old house when I watch this?

My friends and I spent some time with this one. Great gameplay, graphics, and sound...nice backgrounds and voice work. A great game to pick up and play for minutes or hours.

A often overlooked shump this game is pretty good. You can charge up your weapon for a more powerful shot and a lot of strategy in the game is knowing what enemies to use the normal rapid fire shots on and who to use the power up shots on. A bit plan and basic looking but still a lot of fun.

"Acclaim was such a hit-and-miss company with arguably more misses than hits, but I'll always remember them for being a top developer of the 90s." - kingjames777

 Michael Jackson's Moonwalker - Sega Genesis
"It's repetitive and has some noticeable flaws, but it more than makes up for it with style. It's a great looking game with an awesome soundtrack." - kingjames777

 Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase - PlayStation
"This looks like a Crash Bandicoot clone you'd find on early access." - vectron5

 Elite Beat Agents - Nintendo DS
"This game is just plain fun. Fun and funny animations and stories, likeable characters, and a distinct cheesy goofy weirdness that just makes it so gosh-darn likeable. The music choices are kinda all over the place, but somehow they all work for the scenarios and all work together as a whole. If you like rhythm games and want to try something offbeat - pun somewhat intended - give this gem a chance!" - svenbtb

"Great game!" - squidbee
