    Galaga Phantom 2040

    King Feature Syndicate's The Phantom has been delighting readers since the 1930s, and every so often the character is revamped for new audiences. One of the most recent attempts came in the form of a new cartoon series that spawned a comic book and video game. The Phantom was recast as a young man turned hero in the mid 21st century. Phantom 2040lets the player control the Ghost Who Walks in a great adventure that bears more than a few similarities to Nintendo's Metroid. Oh, you've never heard of it? Then read our full review and grab a copy!

    Just so everyone knows, the reviewer's information regarding Phantom 2040's controls is inaccurate. It performs the same actions as the SNES version.

    On the Genesis 6-button controller, the grappling beam is assigned to the Z button and pressing the mode button will make the Phantom stand in one place and shoot. It all works quite well. Did the reviewer even play the game?

    I remember that time. God, that was unfortunate. C'est la vie, it's good for somebody to mention it again.

    I liked the old way the reviews were organized better. It was much easier to get an idea of which games were shitty and which ones were halfway decent.
