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.

 Drunken Robot Pornography - PC
"This is an FPS that's BETTER than COD! Combining bullet-hell difficulty, great humor, cheezy one-liners, awesome music and the first person perspective, this is a crazy game that plays excellent! It's well worth the $15 asking price! IT'S D. PLUS R. WITH A CAPITAL P. IT'S PRONOUNCED DRUNKEN ROBOT PORNOGRAPHY!!!!!" - luigiman87

 Panzer Dragoon - Sega Saturn
""Get out of the way you stupid Dragon! I Can't see!!" Is what I constantly say when playing Panzer Dragoon. That's the biggest issue with this game, half your vision is blocked by your character. If only they made it first person perpective or simple make the character you're controlling a little smaller. I never had these issues with StarFox, Space Harrier, or Panorama Cotton which by the way are twice as good as this game! The visuals are good for it's time and the music is great. Unlimted continues would have been nice since it gets crazy hard when you're half blinded." - Truxton4life
