The enemy (aliens as usual. I s'pose) have captured Tanium, the second most strategically important planet this side of the 'Sanvolgrani Rift'. You must fly your 'Quariad' class stealth fighter over the planet destroying as many enemy ships as possible. Now that's what I call a good mission - nice and simple!

As sideways scrollers go, Tanium is rather bland. 'Sticky' controls and slow movement spoil the flow of what should be a fast and frantic blaster and the add-on weapons seem to have no effect and aren't explained anywhere in the instructions. My verdict? Not very playable or addictive and not particularly good value, even at this low price.

5/10
