Review
Fire & Forget 2 An evil madman and his cronies are driving towards your city, ready to blow it up with a nuke. This, you must prevent. You must drive through five levels of shooting, jumping, flying and suicide robots, towards the big boss in order to stop him from making it to his leader. You receive points for every robot and boss you get and the points are tallied after you have won a level or lost a level. Gameplay is somewhat difficult. You will probably die many times in this game by running into the suicide robots. I think it could have had more variety in enemies, weapons but nevertheless is a good action game.

The graphics are colorful though I would expect more detail at the backgrounds (and this is on all other platforms). The sprites, although small, are nicely drawn. The sound is fair though, featuring a few sfx and a music tune as an intro which was not enough to just make you stop and listen. I cannot say that it uses the advanced GX4000 (and CPC+) hardware graphics/sound capabilities...
