GAME > CoilFighter (Ben Smith)

CoilFighter is an intense vertical shoot-‘em-up with vivid colours and a series of increasingly challenging boss battles – eleven of them, in fact. The player is given a choice of three ships to control, each with their advantages and disadvantages, adding to the complexity and diversity in strategies to use in this difficult shooter. The gameplay itself is very testing – one look away from the screen could be to the player’s peril. Continually varying strategies and bullet formations from the enemy ship keeps the player alert and the experience fresh. The graphics generally look well done and most of them are consistent; the dynamic menu visuals are to my particular taste. The particle effects are perhaps a tad overdone, but the game genre justifies this characteristic. In addition, the audio aspect is fabulous, with a perfectly fitting range of dramatising music and sound effects to keep up the tension – especially important for a game of this kind.
