Super Dimension Fortress Macross


An excellent top-down shoot-em-up based closely to the plot of Macross.

The game begins with the Zenteadi assault on the city within SDF Macross. The graphics are great; there are some really detailed backgrounds, the sprites and explosions are large and very well detailed. The sound (including Japanese speech taken from the Anime) and music are great, they really add to the atmosphere.  This is without doubt one of the best Macross games.

You control Hikaru's Valkyrie and a friend can join in as Max. There are loads and loads of power-ups. These range from missiles, bombs and lasers to the ability to transform your jet. The only real problem with this game is that it's a little short with only seven stages.

Great fun for shoot-em-up and Macross fans!
