Alien Planet ][
RR: 7.0
This is an improved version by Justin of his Alien Planet - and no relation to his Alien Planet 2, okay? Justin has retextured Skyscraper Arena here, and obviously had a lot of fun doing it; you don't pick up a Wildfire, you pick up a "Tamefire", and most of the other information announcements have been similarly changed.  Until you pick it up, the whomper is a tiny, insignificant weapon; pick up the TS and you are cautioned about using alt fire too much!
      It is fun, and you know your way around even if all the textures do look wild.  The points-targets are gone from view, but if you remember where they are, you should still be able to hit them; Justin assures me that there is a special "hidden" target there somewhere as well! And you get 73 points when you open the door to the shield...
          So, the textures are gloriously over-the-top, wild and crazy, but you know your way around here well enough, so can still play.  It is certainly an experience!  And the problems of instability and lagginess that plagued the original version seem to have been overcome, which is good news.
