Game play
You control a space ship
and shoot your way through various levels. When you shoot a target, its
replaced by a bonus. Bonus could be bonus points, bonus multiplier,
energy, weapon upgrade or weapon downgrade. This bonus system is the
unique thing on Intruder. You have to think about the weapon you want
to use, and there are a lot of them each with advantages and
disadvantages. Also the bonus need to be changed to real score by pick
up a bonus synbol. But you have to take care that you have the x5
multiplier at that time. The energy could be refreshed either by bonus
or by docking to energy refreher.
Level design
You could not refresh your
energy all the time of course
and its also enshured, that you better change the weapon from time to
time because some weapons turn the ship into a much bigger one so that
it will have problems to fly between some obstacles.
Motivation
I got into this “one more”
mood. After a while you only loose energy because of obstacles (at
least in the early levels) and so you allways have the feeling, that
you could do better, or that you maybe should use anoterh weapon.Also a great idea, that you maybe collect a lot of bonus points, but
you have to change them to real points by pick up a bonus symbol that
appears not that often of course. And you have to avoid to downgrad
your bonus multiplier, so you can’t pick up all the bonus stuff flying
around.

You also have to avoid immediately downgrad your weapon after you
upgrade it, because the downgrade egg appeary short after a upgrade egg.

Indeed a nice game.
It could use a bit better scrolling indeed but seeing that it uses some
really big sprites…

SSB
A
tad too laggy and
way too hectic for my taste but the graphics surely look nice.
ThorN
A great game
Great
game
The
game has nice
graphics, and some nice attack waves

The game rocks. It’s really great to play this unknown gem. Many thanks
to Xerus for the selection. I think that this is the game Steve Bak
would liked to code when he thought about a side scroller as a
Goldrunners follow up.

The graphics are great, and the shot sound is not annoying, I simply
like the game

Xerus
I
found a trick
(too late), don’t move if you are attracted by a piece of landscape !
