Menace


UPDATE: https://ataricrypt.blogspot.co.uk/2017/07/menace.html

This isn't a review. I simply needed to vent about this awesome shoot 'em up which many Atari ST gamers appear to hate. I admit, Psygnosis isn't my favourite company and released more than a few lazy Amiga ports. Many include Menace which is something I strongly disagree with albeit with an odd yellow ship!!

Menace scrolls along perfectly with large sprites and colourful scenery accompanied by nice effects and gorgeous David Whittaker chiptunes. Controls are responsive and precise with gameplay that is fast, smooth and bucket loads of fun. This is an extremely addictive shooter with that "just one more go" appeal. Fantastic game!! /rant

Both floppy and hard drive versions are available at Klaz's Hideaway :-)
