"The only defense the Earth has against the falling
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!
The use of animation and visual effects to stimulate the senses
|The space setting and the multi-colored
ships make for an average score.
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
|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
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
|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.
To strike the mental nerve in such a way as to stimulate human thought
|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.
