Insects in Space (C64)
|Insects in Space
Insects in Space is a scrolling shooter very similar to Defender (ARC). You control a nude angel (complete with a single brown pixel for a nipple) who must fly through space and zap giant astrosects with your laser eyes in order to save the cute cherubs. Like Defender the screen scrolls on a horizontal plane with a city at the bottom full of people who are abducted by the enemies. Unlike Defender you can also scroll vertically to find an upside down city at the top of the map. As you wipe out the enemy ships you progress on the the next wave which has harder and harder enemies to deal with.
Despite the annoying insect noises that begin the music, Martin Galway gives this game fairly competent title music. Not his best work, but this game isn't much to write home about.
The title melody from 1:06 to 1:51 and the wind and thunder sound effects rely on SID's built-in low-pass filter, which differs on every C64. Fortunately, the game allows you to adjust the game's filter usage by pressing the + and - keys.
