Adapted from a little-seen coin-op effort, Image Fight is a vertical shooter extravaganza. All of the typical shoot-em-up elements are here, including power-up capsules that allow you to tailor your firepower to a particular area and sidecar options that can be manipulated in a number of ways. Throw in four separate endings, huge Boss attacks and a built-in difficulty selector and the game rounds out.
While the graphics in Image Fight are not the best I've seen on the NES, they do provide a depict backdrop for the action. Plenty of power-ups, lots of targets and big and bad Bosses are a must for any good shooter, however, and this game has it.
An unbelievably intense game for the NES. The action in non-stop, with a large number of levels! AS you proceed, the game remains challenging and visually different. With the addition of power-ups, the game holds interest and becomes more playable.
What appears to be another "me-too" shooter is really a top of the line overhead blast-em-up. Half-a-dozen power-ups and a load of enemies to shoot at, topped off with difficult Bosses at the end of each level make this a nice change of pace!
Image Fight is a nice, straightforward shooter, with all the necessary elements intact. The game splits into sub-missions after the first missions are complete, and this adds some diversity to the shoot, shoot, shoot. Lots to see and lots to shoot at.
