Sub Terrania -- Sega

Rescue trapped miners from an alien invasion in this unique shooter for the Sega Genesis. But Beware! The player's true enemy is not the aliens--but gravity, itself. Use your limited fuel supplies skillfully and wisely to outmaneuver your adversaries and rescue your comrades. Collect the necessary pieces, and your craft becomes a submarine ready to battle the ultimate challenge.

I seem to remember playing this game many many years ago. I really liked it then, as I do now. The graphics and sound are nothing to be thrilled about, but the game play is something to be reckoned with! A difficult game that will challenge even the best of game players for at least a while. If you are tired of all of the SF2, and straight shooters, this is a real alternative. If you are ready to deal with a challenge, I highly recommend this title.

Finally, someone realizes that a shooter doesn't have to scroll only in one direction. The graphics were quite good and the music fits the game well. Your ship handles very nicely and is easy to control. Being able to explore makes this game very enjoyable and fun to play. Overall this is a very solid game for the Genesis. Let's see a few more like this, Sega.

I love it! For those of you that have played Rotor in it's various computer incarnations, you've got to check this cart out. It's not exactly like Rotor, but it comes very close. The play control was very responsive; sound was good. Definitely a permanent addition to my personal faves list. I've played may hours on this game and plan to spend many more. Replay value is quite high--but so is the frustration level; and I find that after a game our two, I need to take a break from play before continuing. I didn't really have a problem with this though. An absolute must for any shooter fan, but be prepared, this is not your normal shooter type game.

Check it! Precise control, excellent graphics, and a unique style of gameplay come together in a very challenging shooter. Unlike other shooters, Sub Terrania is a greater test of precision flying than lighting reflexes. The levels demand careful regard for fuel conservation and can be difficult. Intriguing.
