Title Battle Squadron Game Type Shoot'em up Players 1-2 Compatibility OCS/ECS HD Installable No Submission Klaus Dreyer Review This action packed game is just as traditional as it is good. Nothing new under the sun here, maybe except for the perfect graphics, the excellent tunes and sounds and a gameplay that'll make you sit in front of your computer for a long time, that is if you like scrolling shoot'em'up games of course. The scenery is (as so many times before) space, and everything is seen from above. The playfield is a bit wider than the screen itself, meaning that the nice backgrounds (planet surfaces, aliens, big buildings, etc.) also scrolls from left to right or the other way around according to the position of your spacecraft. If you are two players you can play simultaniously. When you shoot down certain enemies, they drop a token that gives you more and better fire power, and of course there's the obligatory end-of-level monsters you have to destroy. Also, there is the opportunity to fly down to a sublevel, but the mission is the same: Kill the aliens. The more levels you play the harder the game gets. Nothing new here, but it's all so very well done. The colorful and well drawn graphics and the great sound really helps to create a new dimension for the old-fashioned gameplay; the "game over"-tune is especially superb in all its simplicity. If you like old-style 2D action games this is certainly the game for you, if not play it anyway just to experience the technical side of it and the atmosphere.
