STORY / GAMEPLAY
You have been sent on a mission to destroy a thermonuclear planet in the Halson galaxy that's swarmed by aliens, volcano craters and lakes! Every so often, a spaceship appears and you enter it taking you into space, where you shoot and dodge the alien forces. Although the full game lasts about 5+ minutes, The gameplay is EXTREMELY difficult as you need to be very precise when jumping over obstacles while the aliens attack and drain your energy levels easily.
GRAPHICS / SOUND
The CPC has nice graphics with bright colors (mostly based on purple), but the animation is very jerky and suffers a lot from low framerates, rendering the game from difficult to impossible! The sound is typical and features a few sound effects but nothing really special. The reason this game is included on our CPC collection, is that Sideral War is considered one of the best games (!!!) Delta ever developed.
