If you are as big a fan of Raiden as I
am, then you are in for a treat. Zap!2000, developed by Astraware
is like Raiden on a handheld! It's basically a flight-shooter
game where you fly fighter ships in a galaxy or ocean and
shoot as many incoming enemies and dangerous objects as you
can to stay alive. There are 7 levels with a tough boss in
each level and countless enemies, though you will have to
be very good at it to see the last bosses.
Playing Hint and Tips
Keep Moving. The enemies all have
patterns when they come at you. Your first priority is
to move your butt out of their way. You don't have to shoot
all the enemies, but you do have to conserve your limited
number of lives. It's very important to keep moving while
you are fighting the bosses. Stand still and you're toast.
Here are a few cheat codes that will
get you through the end of the game. While game is running,
write "x" in the graffiti area, then write: "i" for
infinite lives, "l" to advance to the next level, "p" to
get one extra power-up, "v" to increase your
defense longer. Who says there is no Game Shark for the
"You can increase you Nuke-power.
The Code is alpha-x-p. In the grafitti area just enter
- 'á' (mirror image of 'x') then 'x' and then 'p'
and voila - u have nukes." This hint was submitted by Tariq
