The game design and concept is quite strange.That is, imagine a world where time and technology have stood still for decades. There are no wars, there is no disease and people of all races have lived together in peace... Until the earth is being invaded by the evil Blardax Maldrear (!) who decides to make the planet his own and begin a merciless invasion! Heavily influenced by the classic arcade shooter "1942", Banshee roars into life with an ocean full of enemy ships and planes! Just shoot anything and everything that moves! Tanks, trains, troops, planes and all manner of other enemy hardware will do everything in their power to take you down. The game supports a two player option too!
The game features excellent use of AGA capabilities as it sports many colors on screen and many animated sprites at once, some of them really big and perfect 4-way scrolling. The sprite animation is pretty smooth being a real arcade like (coin-op) shooter! Sound is good having superb in game music and sfx. I liked the death screams of the soldiers being killed!
