Evade and conquer!
22 April 2012 | by Aaron1375See all my reviews

In this game you fly a fly like ship! You must conquer the think on the right side of the screen that is shielded by either a simple dome, or a moving rectangle shield. To destroy the shield you do a combination of shooting it with your very short range dot attack and eating of the shield. Beware! The thing you attack occasional turns into the swirly thing of dome and attacks you! If that is not bad enough, you must evade the ever present line that will hunt you down tirelessly! Once you have opened a hole to the thing that is protected by the two shield types or obliterated the shield all together you must launch your ultimate attack. I strange rectangle that appears to the left of the screen and when fired is the only thing that can destroy the thing you are supposed to destroy. It can even take that thing down in deadly swirly mode! It can also take out you, so you have to be careful when launching it. Like most Atari games the game play during the course of the game varies little. You alternate between the two shield types and after the destruction of the thing the shield changes color. I have gotten it to go to pink, whether there are more colors beyond that is for a better gamer than me to tell you. Pretty fun game, the changing shield color at least gives you something to keep moving forward and it is not like it gets as impossible as say space invaders where they go from one end to the other then crush you in the later stages.
