STORY / GAMEPLAY
Delta Base to Star Quest - Priority Dispatch - Code Red! Your mission is to fly Star Quest over the Alien mother-ship, destroying everything on sight with the ultimate goal to reach the Main Ship's Reactor. Your flight will be dangerous since you also have to avoid pylons, buildings and shadowed objects. You will suffer intense attacks from waves of well equipped Defender Ships protecting the mother-ship! Well, this game is surely a wonderful shoot 'em up, but very tough at the same time. You may easily crash either on an enemy ship or on any obstacle found in the surface of the mother-ship and this gets more difficult when you speedup your ship!
GRAPHICS / SOUND
When I first played this game I was absolutely amazed by the graphics (especially the explosion effects) and the music. Technically, this game is one of the best I've ever seen on an 8bit home micro! Honestly, the background details, the smooth sprite animations and the colors make this shoot 'em up a unique experience for an 8bit release. The sound is equally good, with sampled (!) voices on the 8bit Atari computers (!) at the end of each level and also beautiful sound effects like explosions, laser shots and more. But to enjoy its technical greatness you must be ready to face loose controls and a high difficulty level! So be prepared!
