Final Orbit. (computer game) (evaluation)
by Len Poggiali

Fans of vertically scrolling shoot-'em-ups will enjoy Final Orbit, even though its plot is a variation on an old theme. Stranded on a planet, yout must battle your way through nine levels to its core and destroy it before garbage bags and other intelligent waste destroy you.

Due to awkward steering controls and the sheer number of adversaries, the game is difficult even in its easiest mode. Fortunately, you can pick up more powerful weapons and play simultaneously with a friend. The graphics and animation are stupendous--this one will put you in orbit.
