Personal review
Possibly THEEEE finest 2D shooter of all time. Taking a very rough basis from the Defender blueprint, adding power-ups, and the strangest painting premise in an arcade game... ever! These mashed-up elements produce a game of unrivalled addictivness and skill.

Possibly too tricky in the beginning of the game, stupid-heads might give it a miss. But continue, and you will be rewarded - a total classic.
