Title Overkill Publisher Mindscape Game Type Shoot-em-up Players 1 HD Installable No Compatibility AGA Submission Chris Vella firstname.lastname@example.org Profiled Reviewer Review This game is a defender clone with enhanced graphics and sound. For the few people who don't know what defender is, this is how the game is played. You control a ship in which you have to save people on the planet surface. Enemy aliens try to capture the people and mutate them to turn against you. The game scrolls horizontally and at a frantic pace. You are attacked relentlessly by aliens and spaceships. Radar shows where the aliens are so you know when and where they will be attacking from. Kill all the aliens and you will face the end of level guardian. Defeat it and you go to another planet to do it all again, this time with different and harder to kill enemies. There are at least 5 levels in the game. (I can't be sure because I never completed the game.) and each one has it own unique enemies. The graphics are very nice and the way the enemies burst apart like exploding watermelons is a very nice effect. The sound is also suitable for this type of game. Gameplay is fast and furious and the difficulty level seems just about right. In conclusion, this is a very nice game. It doesn't improve upon the concept of defender, but the graphics and sound are greatly enhanced. If you like defender then you will like this game. If you see it in the bargin bin then buy it, if not, then get defender from the Public Domain. It may not look as good as Overkill but it will play the same.
