Here's a familiar name for video gamers, and a scrolling shooter on the SF that will numb your fingers. It features wild background music and good sound effects, variable settings from the option screen and an overall tough challenge for all gamers. It also has some wonderful graphics, though at a couple of places in the game you'll see some minor flickering and missing sprites.
Overall, Darius Twin is a good game that is similar to Thunder Force II (for the Genesis) and Sinistron (for the Turbo-Grafx-16). It takes you through various levels in mixed horizontal and vertical scrolling. You'll wonder where the next attack will come from.
