IMG Reviews Deimos Rising
9:19 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Inside Mac Games has posted a review of Deimos Rising, the sequel to the wildly popular Mars Rising from a few years ago by Ambrosia Software. Here's a snippet from the review:

Deimos Rising is the arcade experience all over again. The game is a simple, back-to-basics shooter in the style of Raiden, Galaga, and dozens of other standup arcade games you might have grown up with. The objective is clear: the player fights enemies, avoids enemy fire, and survives long enough to clean out each level. As the game progresses, players gain different weapons and power-ups that they can switch between at different times to suit the fighting conditions of each level.

Deimos Rising differs from the classic arcade shoot-em-up in the sense that the weapons arenít as conventional as they might appear. The game requires a balance between the primary aerial laser weapons (which change with each level, players gaining new primary weapons while still being able to switch back to older aerial weapons) and a ground-based secondary weapon that generally functions as a bomb.
