Game Review

Menace is a side scrolling space shooter created by DMA Design originally for the Amiga. It was published by Psygnosis in 1988. One year later the game was ported and released for the Commodore 64, Atari ST and DOS.

The game was the first title by the Scottish software house and its success made possible for DMA Design to become the famous studio that we all know (author of Lemmings, amongst other things).

The game is strongly influenced by R-Type but this doesn't mean it's a clone. The big aliens with an organic look are indeed similar to the ones of R-Type but apart from this, the game is really unique. Initially called Draconia (which is also the name of the enemy planet that your ship has to destroy), the game was renamed to Menace to avoid an overlap with a game released for the C64.

Menace was a commercial success and it received very positive reviews, all above 80%. Blood Money, another shooter by DMA Design, is considered the (unofficial) sequel.
