Super Nova -- Taito

I'm glad to see that Taito finally did justice to this game. In Super Nova, the sequel to Darius Twin, Taito has fixed all the problems I had with their first release, and even made some improvements. I still would have liked to see the game letterboxed to provide a longer play area, but that's life. Play control was very nice, sound was average, but the graphics, they were very sharp. I liked all the subtle use of transparent colors in the foreground to add extra depth to the backgrounds. Shooter fans should take the time to check out this game, it's well worth it.
