In this game you're asked to play Major Locke of the Sidereal Infantry, pilot a Pelotrone Fighter through the defences of Phantis and rescue Arkos from the clutches of Gremla. And now, courtesy of the YS subtitling service, a translation, Game Over 2 - zap everything you meet in this horizontally-scrolling shoot-'em-up.

After that, it's heartwarming to report that the game itself is rather spiffy, outstripping the original in every department. It has blazingly colourful graphics which get increasingly imaginative the further you progress. On Level One you're attacked by somewhat drab space fighters, but before long you'll be facing space serpents, raging volcanoes and oversized toads.

The gameplay is nicely balanced so that you're never unfairly swamped by baddies. And when you get blasted, you don't get sent back to the beginning of the level. Hurrah! To cut a long review short, throw away the inlay, load the game up and zap, zap, zap away. Spanish gold.

The fireflies were particularly irritating that evening.
