   This game is hard to categorize, it has shooting, platform, and arcade
elements, all of which are very well executed. The game can best be
described as a running, shooting, arcade game.

   You control a warrior who must make his way to the end of the level,
shooting all enemies and collecting keys which will allow you to get
past locked doors. You also have a limited number of smart bombs which
will take out most enemies with one use. You are sometimes required to
perform pinpoint jumping and timing techniques to be able to cross non
connecting platforms while avoiding traps and enemies. There are also
shoot'em up levels with huge end of level guardians. There is a time limit
so you can't take too much time trying to complete the levels. Some of the
levels include zombies, forest, and various shooting levels. They are all
nicely varied and layed out extremely well.

   The graphics are superb, with nice parallax scrolling and the sound is
also very good. The use of color is a little odd with lots of greens and
oranges but you get used to it. Joystick control is very simple and
responsive, to activate your smartbomb you just hold the fire button for
about 2 seconds. The game also plays wonderfully, and the difficulty level
is perfect. All the gaming styles work well together and you never get
bored playing.

   In conclusion, I have always felt that this game was very underrated..
This is a great game that plays extremely well. It's not a classic but is
a game that's definetly worth buying. All the different game styles play
well and should keep you busy for a while. It's one of the best games of
its kind, so treat yourself to this underrated fine piece of software.
