Mutant Storm PC CD-ROM
by Sold Out Software
Developed by PomPom Software
Release Date: Out Now
When the batch of Sold Out titles arrived for review I have to confess I had never heard of Mutant Storm. Whilst I never minded a good arcade blaster it's not that often that I get to play one, for one reason or another. If you're the kind of gamer who yearns for the classic arcade experience you would be wise to pick up a copy of Mutant Storm because from whichever direction you look at the game, it's impressive.
The game offers pure, classic arcade thrills with you revolving your spacecraft and attempting to take out the enemies before they do likewise to you. The game is fiendishly addictive and it will require great skill to complete all of the games 89 levels that are on offer. As you might expect from such a game there are power-ups aplenty and a variety of increasingly difficult enemies to challenge you. It's a testament to the quality of the game that you'll keep coming back again and again because although it gets difficult it's very addictive. Best of all though is that the game controls superbly with the keyboard and mouse (although dual-stick joypads are supported if you so desire) and you can even play two-player games.
As this is purely an arcade blaster there isn't any speech and as a result the game is fine for deaf gamers. Graphically the game looks good (relatively speaking of course) and remains ultra smooth, during hectic levels, on even low specifications PC's. The game features online hi-score tables so you can see how you fair against the best the online gaming world has to offer. In fact from top to bottom this is a class act and it's our pick of this latest batch of games from Sold Out Software.

A classic arcade blaster that's well worth the asking price.
