  • Summary: You are the victim of a horrible scientific experiment! Terrorize innocent bystanders, fumbling military squads and unsuspecting cities to exact your revenge. [ValuSoft]

  1. We're especially tickled by the game's delightfully campy '50s-era moster-movie trailers used to introduce our origins, and how you can play the game in black-and-white. [May 2003, p.84]
  2. There is some fun to be had totally ravaging towns and cities, and, what the heck, it’s only $20. But if you’re looking for a game that’ll be more than a weekend fling, look elsewhere.
  3. It's easy to become so charmed by the game's presentation (and the game's $20 price tag) that you start to forget that somewhere in this otherwise entertaining set of features there needs to be a good game.

    Within an hour, you've pretty much seen and done all the game has to offer.
  5. Full of dramatic flair and humor, but the truth is that when the humor gets old the gameplay grows stale quickly.
  6. The result is four cool-looking monsters running through poorly rendered cities that blow up blandly, and arcade thrills nowhere near the level achieved by equally mindless arcade coin-ops 20 years ago. [May 2003, p.85]

    The game's campy humour and multiple gameplay options make this a great stress reliever. It's much too easy to run off a few dozen levels - and an entire evening - at one sitting! Expand
