STORY / GAMEPLAY
Earth is on the verge of an attack by aliens that aim to turn humans into mindless slave zombies. Halloween Harry is called from the Liberty Space Station to take action and get orders to penetrate the alien ship that burrowed itself under a high-rising city. The game is divided into 4 different episodes (Sewers, Factory, Office Block, Alien Ship), each one with different graphics and difficulty level. Harry has a basic number of weapons (a machine gun and a flamethrower) and a jet-pack to fly around levels. In addition, he can collect money that grand access to more powerful (but limited) weaponry like a photon cannon, guided missiles, grenades, shields, micro nukes and the devastating Omega bomb.
The controls surely need to be mastered but other than that the action is fun, mindless, absorbing and the huge range of enemies and bonus pods can keep your interest for hours. Just a quick tip: Pressing [B] [I] [G] at the same time, it will give you full health and jet-pack energy.
GRAPHICS / SOUND
Technically the game looks and plays well with some nice backgrounds and a wide number of colors whilst the sprites and the backdrops move fast and smooth. The sound effects are again the standard shooter type with explosive sounds and a few nicely composed tunes.
