Solar Storm - Cartridge

DescriptionSubmit Description
Defend your planet in this vertical shooter from Imagic. Solar Storm tries to keep you on your toes by pitting you against waves of solar debris and evil Deltoid fighters that will try and pass you to hit the planet below. If too many pass you by, your planet will overheat and the game will be over. If you reach a certain score you enter a bonus round with a zoomed out view where you can see your whole planet, allowing you to take shots at passing Deltoid ships. After the bonus round, normal gameplay resumes, with a faster wave of enemies for you to defend against.

Solar Storm's graphics are actually quite colorful, and flicker-free for the most part. Gameplay can be slightly frustrating as the enemy's shots are lightning fast and you have no shields, but you have the same type of laser as your enemies at the very least. Solar Storm is the only Imagic game that makes use of the paddle controllers, which actually works well for this type of game. (Contributed by Shaggy the Atarian)
