ArmadaSTORY / GAMEPLAY
After thousands of years humans have managed to colonize the Universe and become more powerful trying to adapt to their new environments. While everything seemed so peaceful and prosperous, a new danger came from nowhere and declared war to humanity. Alien Bio-Mechanical legions called "Armada" are on the run to destroy each and every human that ever colonized space. Their plans are to conquer, destroy and cause chaos to what people struggled building for many centuries. As a skillful pilot, your main purpose is to control your ship and stand your ground to defeat the Armada and save humans from this threat. The game features a lot of exploring either on a planet's surface or in outer space. You must hit each enemy spacecraft with every power available which can be enhanced by collecting credits and visiting shops. You can also correspond with your fellow-pilots to gain extra energy and ammo or even find allies in outer space that can aid you with your main cause. The game's controls are quite responsive and the game gives the time to master them. Overall, this shooter is surely great and very fun, so every Dreamcast owner should give it a shot!

GRAPHICS / SOUND
This game fits greatly to a powerful hardware like Sega Dreamcast. You explore vast areas with colorful planets zapping numerous sprites all over the screen. The camera perspective is from above and you can easily control your fighter's weapons and boosters. Everything runs so smoothly, with multiple enemies all around and explosions everywhere! This great presentation is surrounded by solid Sci-Fi sound effects and some original music scores. The game is really cool, very playable and a candy to the eyes (and ears).
