I got an Evercade for Christmas, and this – originally an Atari Lynx game – was the first title I completed. Not sure why I chose it, but a brief play as I was running through the various games hooked me a little and soon I’d finished it.
It’s a platform shooter, except you don’t jump much as you have a jetpack. Across about 15 levels, all of which feel exactly the same, you have to find elements of a bomb, then find the exit, then beat a boss, then move on.
Although it isn’t really very hard, it’s pretty frustrating as your gun is less effective than a water pistol and even the most basic of enemies need a million shots to destroy, let alone the bosses. You get extra weapons but each only allows a handful of uses, and they don’t carry from level to boss so you can’t even hoard them.
Still, as Lynx games go (damning with faint praise), it’s not bad.
