If Paradroids scores, it's on its 'differentness'. The idea is to move up and down your energy beam, firing left and right at the paradroids. The jump off the various ledges all the way up the sides of the nuclear reactor you are defending. Should any successfully parachute to the bottom they reach the reactor and mutate into much more vicious droids. The graphics are quite good, brightly coloured, move smoothly and react quickly to the control keys (well laid out), the result is a reasonable game, but somewhere the idea has faltered - it's too easy to play and so becomes boring. The inlay states that there are user-definable keys, but there aren't. Overall CRASH rating 54% M/C.
