Assault (1983 video game)
The player is presented with an alien mother ship, which continually deploys three smaller ships during play. The mother ship and the smaller vessels shoot at a weapon the player is in command of, and the player's aim is to eliminate the opposition while preventing the weapon from receiving enough fire to destroy it. The player uses a joystick to operate the game, and only one player at a time can play.
Critical reaction to the game by non-contemporary reviewers been mixed. Keita Iida, marked the game as unoriginal, concluded that the gameplay is unimaginative, and described the graphics as "drab visuals". He also said that Assault is a rip-off of Galaxian. However, Iida opined that the game is better than some other Bomb products. "Classic Video Game Reviews" gave the game a B+ grade, saying that it is a "little gem," noting that though he did feel it is a rip-off of Phoenix or Demon Attack, he it is fun and employs a good colour scheme.
