Game of the Day - Chelnov: Atomic Runner
There are three buttons that you play with, shoot, jump and change direction you are facing. You change direction to shoot things that are behind you. Also, the shoot and jump together cause you to somersault. Shooting while you somersault enables you to shoot in all directions and can eliminate a lot of enemies.
It adds a lot to the game that you can shoot either direction and at 45 degree angles - unlike lots of games from this era.
The graphics are uninspired but it doesn't matter much. The game mechanics are great and the game is both fun and challenging.
