Roger: Having always thought that 'Cylon' was something they made cheap shirts out of, I was disagreeably surprised to find it cropping up as yet another alien life form. Here we go again, striving to protect the wholesomeness of one's mother ship.

Launch and landing sequences, and onscreen instrumentation (including radar and cockpit sights) complement protective screens and lasers that gradually expire from over-exposure to malevolent cheap shirts. As one would expect, these garments are cleverly disguised as spacecraft, getting bigger as they get nearer.

That, more or less, explains the pretension towards 3D graphics, in which case I can only wish there were more - dimensions, that is. Such a facility would at least allow me to exploit the space/time continuum and slip off for a swift half whilst Spectrum and Cylons play 'shootie-bangs'. Computers have no feelings. Neither have shirts. 1/5 MISS

Ross: This didn't quite live up to my hopes that it would be a good 'blast everything that moves' game, but it wasn't that bad. 2/5 MISS

Dave: Nice, big, smooth graphics are the main feature of this game. I didn't find it very addictive, but 'shoot 'em up' fans might think it's fun. The background graphics are great. 3/5 HIT
