Special Agent Jim Power-The supernatural alien, Vaprak, threatens to defeat our world which is the last planet that stands between him and a dimensional vortex. This vortex leads to a fifth and, up until now, lost dimension. If he succeeds in defeating us, he will destroy our world, opening a gateway for his kind as well as the strange mutating effect that this dimension has on all organic life forms. His forces are far too strong for us to defeat in a frontal attack which is why we must send you to slip past his Omni-eye scanners and make an assassination attempt on the greatest evil that man has ever known. It will take absolutely all of your wits and skill but it is imperative you reach his fortress and send him back to the sulphurous plane from whence he came.

This game may have been good 25 years ago, but nowadays it's sadly no fun at all. The idea in itself is great - big space adventure, exploration, meeting aliens and making contact with them, but compared to it's successors it simply lacks content - vast majority of the game feel empty, you spend a lot of time staring in the black screen of space vaccum and wait for minutes after minutes until something happen. It may have been fun experence in the past, but nowadays we expect content not just pointless time-wasting. So if you want game you will actually have fun playing - look for something else. If you want to experience really oldschool annoying gameplay - you may try this one ;)
Sadly it's not a remake, just re-release of the great classic title. You get to choose from the 3 versions of the game - DOS, NES and SNES - personally I think the SNES is the best choice. On top of that you get some vision filters that make game look a little bit more new, but it's nothing special to tell the truth. As for gameplay itself you get a great mix of platforming and SHMUP. Game difficulty varies from platform version - DOS version is much slower thus easier, that's why you should stick to SNES ver. Soundtrack is timeless and sounds absolutely fantastic today as it did back in old times. So all in all it's not a bad experience, but putting just a filter at top of the visuals is too little to call a game a remake or enhanced version.
