Fusion is a computer game by Bullfrog released in 1989.

It is a multi-directional scrolling shoot 'em up game (with parallax scrolling). The action is viewed from the top. The player controls either a ground-based crawler or a spacecraft. There are thirteen levels.

Development[edit]

The game was created by Peter Molyneux and Glenn Corpes, the former doing of most of the programming and design and the latter taking care of graphics and animation.[1] The music was written by David Hanlon.

Reception[edit]

A UK magazine gave the ST version a score of 9 out of 10, saying that despite being "yet another vertically scrolling shoot-'em-up" it has "sufficient variation".[2]
