Latest Games Reviewed: Frenetic

Frenetic is a vertical shooter created by Core Design and released for Amiga and Atari ST in 1991.

It's a very traditional game that perfectly fits in the space shoot-em-up genre, including masterpieces such as Xenon 2: Megablast and Hybris. Frenetic is divided into 8 large levels that alternate between technological design and aliens-organic design. Of course, there are plenty of enemies, power-ups, weapons, and end-of-level bosses. In this, the game does not try to innovate too much.

The most discussed decision is the reset of all weapons and power-ups when you lose a life, something very frustrating for the players. Anyway, Frenetic has a feature that you don't find in many other games: this shoot-em-up by Core Design can be played by two players simultaneously in co-op. A good reason to choose this title if you are with a friend! Have fun!
