Arcadrome Reviewed
7:57 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Macworld's Game Room has posted a review of Arcadrome, an OS X action game from PolyEx. The game involves blasting hordes of alien enemies while collecting energy crystals. The Game Room gave Arcadrome a score of 3.5 out of 5.

From the review:

Every 10 levels (there are 100 in all), you’ll find a new Boss—a larger, more devastatingly powerful alien ship that you’ll need to use your wits and your firepower to compete against. If you make it through, you can also save your game every 10 levels. This features irritates me—I hate being forced into artificial restrictions on when I save my game. Just let me save at the end of each level, or save for me automatically.

Arcadrome is displayed using forced perspective, but don’t confuse this with old fashioned isometric graphics—the game is 3-D. When your ship is at the bottom of the platform, the graphics scale larger to give you the sense that you’re closer to the action, and when you’re at the top, it looks like you’re farther away. All of the game control is done with the mouse, from steering your ship to determining velocity to firing. The game plays better if you have a multi-button mouse, since the second mouse button is used to control your bomb.

The full review is available at the link provided below.
