If your into old arcade shooters like Xevious or whatever, this game is a must own. I personally think this game is great, i find my self going back to it over some of the more epic of shooters in my collection. It has power ups that are pretty rad for 1984, every time i got the one that makes your guns stronger and changes up the music i couldn't help but feel the energy. the graphics and soundtrack are great, the game posses the charm that is essential to making those mid-80s arcade games still playable to this day. If your are a shooter fan whos not into old stuff like Galaga stear clear, but like i said, this is a must own for the arcade aficionado.
