I disagree. The multiload was the best part of the game.

Great posts, Mr. Cruel. 1990 is a year whose games I don't know much.

edit: just watched the video walkthrough. It's one of the very rare games that gives you satisfying graphical sequences each time you accomplish an important task and when you finish the game. A certain effort has been put into the game.

Been playing Alien Syndrome this week. Even though it's a well-known game I never got into it. It's less polished, but more playable than I imagined.

Can't get past the first boss though—it's rock hard! I nearly got it using the flamethrower, but that meant I was in close quarters and lost my last life when it exploded.

Quality game.
