Rated 4 / 5 stars

pretty good.

Good graphics, nice control, lots of weapons, nice bosses and levels, secrets levels, good story, everything is nice here.

The game froze on me at two different places one being after the fifth boss.

Bombs are not too good, I used them only at the start to remove those dangerous trucks but as soon as you get another weapon they start to become useless. Homing missiles seems way too strong for me as well as the bomb cannon (and they are even boosted by a gadget later). A bit too easy to gather ressources and once you have Homing missiles or bomb cannon the levels starts to get very easy (almost boring when you have the two).

I liked the game and had a good time playing it. Thanks for posting it.

damn glitch

Addictive game with decent upgrading, it kept me hooked for an hr. Up until the 4th boss and everything froze, such a pity.
