Sensitive controls and big-league inertia are enough to make this one deep-down frustrating. You belt into a cavern, pour bullets into those gun-turrets and - having masterfully cleared the area out with a graceful arc of firepower - pile into the opposite wall because you're going too fast to stop. If that's not quite maddening enough for you, there are always the restart points to drive you bonkers. A special mention here goes to "the cup", a structure only found in the ST version, which forces you to haul the pod diagonally down out of its cave. Complete this monumental feat, crash your ship and the game puts you right back in the cup. Get a little further before you crash and it'll put you in a narrow tunnel below the cup, but with the pod balanced above you. Gnash your teeth in vain!
