Where to start with this game? After the last couple of games played I was ready to throw in the towel, but Buster Red turned it around. This game was really fun. Brought back some memories from when I was a kid playing Gradius hour after hour. Yes, I know, it is not Gradius. You can’t go wrong in a game when you have to fight waves of enemies like a scene out of a nightmare. Thankfully there are no firing buttons. Your one saving grace. The ships auto fire making your life semi-easier or harder, depends on how you want to look at it. The object is to survive 30 levels of onslaught. You have powerups or busters that you can collect through each level. Use these wisely.

As far as fun factor is concerned this game is awesome. The graphics are good except that the background tends interfere with the game play. The controls are easy enough. Drag the ship around to avoid death. My only gripe, I was blessed with huge fingers, and dragging something that has disappeared beneath my finger is not fun. Makes dodging projectiles challenging. The game is fun, and will keep you entertained for plenty of hours.
