|The Week in Review|
I wish I had more to report, but I spent most of the week writing upcoming reviews or wanting to punch myself repeatedly in the head for agreeing to play Natural Doctrine.
Speaking of which...
Natural Doctrine- I got far enough into the game to know what I want to say. The review is live now at Realm of Gaming. Now, let's put this crap title behind us...
Bermuda Triangle- Not that you can make much "progress" on an Atari 2600 game, but I figured I'd muse about it. I've played it fairly extensively over the last week and have written a rough draft for it. Despite being a shmup on a way old system, it's actually a lot of fun. The game borrows a bit from Defender, in that you have to recover objects and deliver them to a safe area.

Just looked up your Natural Doctrine review. You know, with my own review, I tried to take a screenshot that properly illustrates just how confusing and muddled that game is, but the ones you went with are about a thousand times worse.

Argh, muddled and frustrating. I think the bottom one illustrates just how confusing the combat system can be. I think it wouldn't be so bad if they didn't 1) use those stupid arrows, and 2) concoct a battle system that bestows peculiar advantages for what seems like random positioning.
