Review - Atypical and obscure side-scrolling shooter (developed by Italian Software House Idea) where you fly over the back of a dragon and in which depending on:
-the number of enemies you manage to hit and
-the completion-time of the sections you fly through
you can earn more or less cash to buy yourself the access to the next level.

Levels develop in a tree structure (like in Darius) and the most direct path to the last level is also the most expensive. Running out of cash leads to the GameOver screen.

Interesting gameplay concept slightly let down by repetitive graphics and slightly awkward controls.

Bottom line: obscure and rare shooter with a good idea, but the concept gets old after some time....6/10
