Frantic may be a good adjective to describe how your work week was and it is the name of the game we look at this Friday to help take the edge off. Frantic is an old school space shooter type game that is a lot of fun.
When you first start out you can choose either keyboard or mouse game controls.
Then select the type of ship you want to use. Each one has different advantages in the way they operate so it is fun to try different types.
The fight is on! You want to shoot down enemy’s, avoid their weapons, and collect power ups all at the same time.
At the end of each level there is a boss to destroy.
After each level you can buy more enhancements for the ship based on how much money you collected.
Frantic is action packed an a lot of fun, though you may want to turn the sound off so the pointy haired bosses don’t catch you.
