Another shooter for Genesis! As a fighter pilot, you get to choose from three of the latest, state of the art fighters before your mission. Many different types of power-ups, and an overhead perspective also highlight this cart. Multiple scrolling backgrounds and a wide variety of enemy artillery, including ground, and air vehicles round out the targets! Toss in digitized sounds and you get Vapor Trail.
Strarlight from the arcade we get Vapor Trail. Not the best game before and not the best now, but for a shooter this title does give a decent thrill. The action is heavy through most of the conflict, but the whole package just doesn't last long enough to earn it a higher review.
Even though this cart does boast some unique options (like 2-player combo action), it is still your basic shooter containing some the expected assortment of weapons and power-ups. Not the best blast-em-up I've played, but no where near the worst either.
Vapor Trail is just not intense enough for my tastes,. The graphics are decent and the music is OK, but the game is far too easy for an 8-Meg shooter. It's over before you know it, even sooner if two player go at it. What killed this cart is the consist-ently boring selection of power-ups.
From start to finish, Vapor Trail is an average shooter. The game's one plus, a two-player simultaneous option, is welcome, but it only really succeeds in making the cart easier. The game suffers from slow-down, flicker, and weaponry that has been seen many times before.
