Born a little too early, I would say. The NES, and later the SNES, was the undisputed champion of these kind of games. Had it come a little later, we would've seen it on the NES and then later a crazy sequel on the SNES... and an upcoming game for the 3DS.

Do a search on your review for "tour." You'll see the error.

Note to gamers: when someone shoots you in the face, they aren't "gay." They are "psychopathic."

Thanhks, Zipp. Nice catch.

'Too early' is more likely, but I still think you could make a viable 'too late' argument. The main point to this game, after all, was racking up a higher score. Had this game have been made circa 1983, I don't think the levels would flow like they do. It would more likely be a game akin to River Raid, a vertical scroller with a faster pace, more abundant enemies, and (likely) no boss battles.

Thanks for reading!
