Top down shoot 'em ups seem to be making a bit of a comeback at the moment, and while Magesloyer manages to just about cut the mustard, this German effort trips over the rim of the pot. misses the mustard completely and falls headfirst into a prickly bush.
Aside from killing everyone, the aim of the game is for you, a three-in-one mean machine, to get to the Cyberlink station and shut down Project Paradise. During the game you can morph into either Raven the warrior, Damian the magician or Quicksilver the hacker, and it's pretty obvious that you'll need to change characters to progress through the game.
Unfortunately, the controls are pretty unresponsive and the main character moves about like the Editor after eight pints of Kronenberg and a kebab on a Friday night. While the graphics can best be described as adequate, even our beast of a P200 had problems running the game smoothly in hi-res. In fact, the only redeeming feature is the spinning landscape, which rotates with the main character in much the same way as it does in Take No Prisoners. Big deal! Oh, did I mention that this was German? You'll not be expecting to see any gobs of blood then. Not even green goo.
