Zynaps - Atari ST [025] PlayThru

Zynaps is another side scroller shooter released by Hewson in 1988 for the Atari ST.  

NOTE: A trainer was used for making this capture.

This appears to be yet another side scrolling shooter, like Slayer, that does not have an ending.  The game just starts over!  This games does predate Slayer, I believe.

The play field of the game is small, but the game does perform decently on the ST. There is occasional slowdown when the screen is busy, but it is not too horrible.  I also like the sprite art; it is simple and functional in this title.

No music while playing, but the sound effects design is decent.

My thoughts?  Pretty much the same as Slayer: a decent entry, and a good play for a few minutes.

The intro music heard here is a sampling of the ZX Spectrum music. 

Capture info -

This gameplay was captured on November 8, 2018.

Game was played on an Atari 1040 STf, TOS 1.4, 1MB, equipped with a CosmosEX from Jookie.
A Best Electronics ST Monitor to VGA cable was used, connected to an OSSC 1.6 (processing the video in Line4x mode), with the output being captured by a Startech USB3HDCAP.
