Space Gun is about rescuing some guys in a space station that looks like sausage on a fork. With a pad and light phaser you can have a go at saving them.
So simple, just point the gun at the screen and pull the trigger at anything that looks like an alien. You must allow the prisoners to run towards you but sometimes they can be aliens in disguise. It plays just like Operation Wolf but with far fewer targets. In other scenes it mimics a corridor game where the aliens come straight at you but slow enough for you to aim your gun at.
Graphics are drawn very well and are nicely detailed. However, the animation takes it toll here so it's best to kill the aliens quickly so you don't notice it too much. There's a great introduction and story showed in some great stills.
Sound & Music
The music has a creepy outta-space type sound so I guess it fits the game fine. However, the sound effects are so few and far in between. They do say that sounds don't travel in space.
Plucking away at the screen with the light phaser is simple enough and works well. The game can be played with just a joypad but the fun factor drops a lot.

Hmm, if you like phaser games then you're more like to enjoy it. Some people though may find the game too slow and boring.
So is it OK? With the phaser it's a blast but there are much better phaser games out there. If you're just using the joypad it's only OK and again, there are better side scrolling games which are pad only - like T2.
