If your a fan of Sega Genesis games you should know that there are many shooters/shoot'em up style games out there, but view point is one tha stands out from the rest.
4 one reason alone the graphics are amazing for a 16-bit system. All the sprites are cleverly crafted in crisp, not pixalized, gleaming 3-D computer rendered graphics.
The controls handle very well, and the level designs are really detailed.
You have your main weapon which is some kind of blaster thingy, and then you have a collection of bombs at your disposal.
There is the homing bomb that locks on and destroys all enemies on screen, its handy but not that powerful, the firebombs are really cool as they send forward these massive waves of fire that just kind of scortch everything.
Then there are the shockwave bombs, those do huge freakin damage and are really good against all bosses, the firebombs are good against most bosses also.
Despite this intense arsenal enemies will still find ways to demolish you over and over again! But its all good, 1 ups aren't that rare and continues I believe are almost unlimited. This is a great game but I will say its also a very tough game too, particularly during the boss fights.
