Great Robotron/Zombie-Shootin' action! Dang it, some sound FX could have taken this up at least a notch.

Playing this game again is my nightmare too, which is especially terrifying given its ability to put me to sleep.

Not bad - Asteroids with flair.

Just what the world needed, another Robotron clone twenty five years after the fact with a control scheme that doesn't at least give you the surreptitiously naughty pleasure of waggling multiple sticks in multiple directions with both hands.
- Richard Dansky, Red Storm
Interesting take on twin stick style shooters but it really could use sound, just one of Peter's sound bites please.
- Rusty Buchert, Sony
I'll never forget being chased around the screen by Peter Molyneux's head... creepy, creepy stuff.
- Nate Fox, Sucker Punch
While a pretty standard shooter, I gave it bonus points for realistically incorporating designers that are often in my own nightmares.
- Dan Teasdale, Harmonix
Perplexingly, while the animation in the cutscenes shows promise, the game itself is rather empty and dull. After a while the enemies get too numerous and the player's weapon is too weak to do anything more than delay the inevitable. Why do so many of these games have no sound?
