Also check out the superior follow-up Rick Dangerous 2 from the same design team.

The Rift is a decent little vertical shooter in the same vein as Space Invaders. The game was never sold, but given as "free gift" to people who registered Pop Software's shareware products. ... 4 too hard (and almost incomprehensible), so die-hard SHMUP fans definitely shouldn't expect the game to last them hours. All in all, The Rift a pleasant little diversion and rarity worth preserving.
Review 1: A lot of people compare this game to Amiga classic Rastan. Some say it's better, some disagree, but they all agree that this is a good game. Is it? If you are an action game lover + you played ... that is a minor gripe. Originally programmed for the Amiga by Zeus Software, this PC version was converted by Spanish developer Dinamic Multimedia.

Review 1: Road Fighter is a fun, early top-down racer from Konami based on the hit arcade game of the same name. The game's simplicity belies its addictiveness: drive your car as fast as you can along ... to race a few stages. You may not touch any cars. If you do you will crash and lose lots of fuel.

By the way, this is named a "racing" game, because it's almost similar to a racing game.
Review 1: Data East's RoboCop is a decent PC port of a fun coin-op game, not to be confused with OCEAN's horrible CGA port released earlier. -This release, while still pales besides the Amiga and Atari ... are really awkward, as they are the old base (Q,A,O,P) movements, which are not as good as the arrows in my opinion. None the less, this game is worth a try by all means. Download and enjoy!

A fun little Lode Runner clone, Roboman is a good example of a game that does nothing to advance the collect-things-and-find-the-exit genre, but effectively implements tried-and-true formula in an elegant ... fun little game, although it falls a bit flat after a while. Better level design could have made it as addictive as Lode Runner or Jumpman. Worth a look, but probably only to beginners in the genre.

Rotox is a fun top-down shoot'em up with decent 3D/bitmap graphics. Your objective: navigate the Cyborg Class 2-A over the platforms while dodging and shooting the deadly machine-enemies. Don't fall off ... draw you in. An okay mixture of pure shooting action, with some skill elements thrown-in. Worth a try, although I doubt few arcade fans will find it fun enough to persevere to finish all nine levels.
Review 1: One of the best Space Invaders clones ever made, Round 42 is also one of the first freeware games I really like. The name comes from the fact that there are 42 rounds of battle against invading ... It has a strange screenmode with 16 colors on CGA, Another game with that strange mode is Mnonbugs. You can play the game probably only on a CGA video card. F1 is fire and F2 is the 'bonus' laser.
