Game Review

Battle Squadron: The Destruction Of The Barrax Empire is the successor of one of the most popular vertical scrolling shooters for Amiga, Hybris. It was developed by Cope-com and published by Innerprise Software in 1989 for the Amiga, with a Genesis version released one year later.

Hybris was already very good, but Battle Squadron is definitely one of the best vertical shooters for the Amiga, and probably one of the best for any platform. The quality is comparable to a real arcade, with graphics that you won't believe it's generated by a non-AGA chipset, an amazing music, and a superb gameplay.

Great level design, tons of power-ups and last but not least, the co-op mode for 2 players, makes this game simply perfect.

Amiga Computing decided to give this game an impossible rating of 109%, exceeding the maximum rating of 100%, and all the other magazines gave between 80 and 90.

If you haven't tried it yet, the time has come!
