Captain Fizz Meets The Blaster-Trons, also known as Mission Icarus, is a sci-fi shooter for two players released by Psygnosis in 1988 for the Amiga, Atari ST, Commodore 64, and ZX Spectrum.
The game was initially released for BBC Micro under the title "Icarus" before Psygnosis agreed to convert it and publish it for other platforms.
The gameplay is not so innovative: classic sci-fi shooting, but with a friend. The screen is divided into two sections, up and down; it reminds me of Spy vs Spy. Each player has his portion of the playfield, and an occasional meeting between the two players is possible. But in this case, you are not competing with your partner; the game is cooperative. In fact, the two players will have to join forces to solve puzzles, open doors, and activate lifts.
True, the 8-bit origins of this title are pretty visible, but this doesn't mean it's not fun, especially if you like frenetic aliens shooting and you have a friend with you.
