Nice vertical-scrolling arcade-style shoot'em up over five levels with good controls and no slowdowns, but also with kind of unspectacular background graphics and uninspiring music.

Decent conversion to Genesis, apart from sound and the colours and the screen size, you get the exact same feeling playing the Genesis version as the Arcade version.
