Just played through the first couple of levels. Not very good, shallow gameplay with poor feedback on hitting and being hit, boring repetetive graphics, and a confusing escort mission.
I tried playing a bit of this on the MiSTer using the mouse as input.
I played a single credit of this, but couldn't figure out how to continue. I think there is a start-like button on the Menacer that is mapped to the middle mouse button in MiSTer. I should try that.
I played up until the escort mission where you have to protect John Conner, who's riding in a truck. I failed it over 10 times in a row, and ran out of continues. This part was so annoying that I don't feel like playing this game again.
