Phobia



ImageWorks released Phobia back in 1989 with a gorgeous oldskool styled cover. Stunning artwork with lots of colour, action and a cruel glare from evil eyes which reflects the gameplay perfectly because its one of the hardest games I have ever played. All the hallmarks of a potentially outstanding shooter are there but it's impossible without a trainer as there is too much going on at once. If ever there was a killer shoot 'em up, this is it - Arrgghhh!!!

I bought Phobia for only 99 pence and it was sealed so the box and contents are in superb condition. I wonder why nobody ever bought it? Hmmm, maybe I'll be brave and record a video and write a review? Maybe...

 - ST Format #1 reviews Phobia but wasn't too impressed with the difficulty - lol wimps!!
 - D-Bug has a download with a trainer and hard drive support.
 - Stonish has the floppy disks and I liked Timelords #29 Menu CD (1MB).
 - Here is a fantastic video recording by Stefan Lindberg.
 - My tweet after playing Phobia for a few minutes... ARGGHHHHHH!!!

     
I should have known this was going to be hard with such a hideous screen. The next pic is my ship being blown up, again!
