Orbitron: Revolution Is Out, Rather Circular


Firebase's side-scrolling shooter Orbitron: Revolution has turned up on the personal computer format, over here. It's a fine-looking piece of retromancy, although I am have been playing it and am not fully convinced. While the pace of the Defender-meets-Uridium-on-a-ring sort of play is excellently paced and suitable explody, I found the visuals a bit tricky to read. Perhaps it's down to the game being more slanted towards TV play than Jim's-face-in-monitor play, but I found myself losing track of what was going on from time to time. That said, I am rubbish at retro-styled shooters, so perhaps the talents of those humans with brains attuned to side-scrolling will have a better time. Update: It's also on Impulse.
