Damn, i remember this game, it was the first shooter i played. It was an amazing game for it's time, and even now, still packs a punch.
A fun little game. Shooting engines in zzt are pretty lame, but this one keeps you playing with neat cutscene animations and a few good adventure segments. The part where you fight to make money to get a new ship is good. Especially since you can make the process less painful by selling goods between different priced merchants. A cleanly programmed game, well tuned.
A quick play, a good bit of nostalgia, and some good humour makes this a winner.
