A quality arcade game from Roklan. This game gives you four different
missions to go through.
The first, Astro Battles, is a mini version of Space Invaders. Even
if you were lousy with Space Invaders, you can easily learn to survive
this mission and continue with the others. The second, Laser Attack,
reminds me of Galaxian in a kamikaze sort of way - two ships fire lasers
and the rest ram you!
The third mission, Space Warp, requires you to shoot Gorfs and
Fighters as they emerge from a vortex. The fourth and final mission of
each round is Flag Ship, where you must first blast through a force
field arc to shoot at the big ship. Just like Star Wars, you are aiming
for a sensitive internal reactor vent. However, defensive fireballs are
coming at you and rebounds of your own shots can hit you. With any ships
remaining you can go through all the hazards again - faster and faster.
The graphics and sound are very well programmed and the game should
suit those fond of arcade games. The four separate missions add variety
and makes Gorf somewhat more challenging than the one screen games.
