"The only defense the Earth has against the falling sky"

Enemy satellites are descending from outer space! It's up to the best defenses our space program can buy to take care of the enemy before they crush the earth.

You get to play the guy in charge of all the turrets. Lock your targets on the satellites and shoot them down. Shoot Bonuses for extra Life and Ammunition. And watch for the dollar signs for Bonus Points!

Graphics (n.)
The use of animation and visual effects to stimulate the senses
The space setting and the multi-colored ships make for an average score.
Sound/Music (n.)
The smooth blend of atmospheric sounds and original harmonies
The PC speaker sounds of Shot compliment the action, not really taking away from any of the gameplay.
Gameplay (n.)The precision of control and involvement of character within its universe vvv
Using the number keys (1-9) instead of the conventional directional buttons to control the turrets for Shot makes for original gameplay. Toss in some extra weapons and bonuses and it all gets interesting.
Story (n.)
The creativity and presentation of the game's critical plot
The story for Shot is printed in README.TXT, but it really ought to be implemented into the game to get more than one point.
Replay Value (n.)
The timelessness of the gamer's delight, such that the experience can be repeated again and again
Average. It's not nearly as addictive as the top QB arcade games, but Shot can provide a pretty good break from a more pressuring QB game.
Challenge (v.)
To strike the mental nerve in such a way as to stimulate human thought and reflexes
The game gets harder and harder as you progress, but it does stop at a point. Also, it takes a while to really get the hang of the Expert level.
Fun Factor (n.)
The overall entertainment value as maintained throughout the adventure
Shot is kinda like a Missile Command clone gone vertical combined with a speed program. The different weapons allow for some merit, but after a while that wears.
Players 1 player Genre: Arcade Game
Rating To solve: N/A Final Rating: 14/35
