Anyway, I did it in the end. I made it to Proscenium and I killed those four blobs. As a boss battle they were perhaps a bit underwhelming (though still crazy hard), but I liked the way the ending left things on a cliffhanger - the evil spider alien you saw has disappeared from the city, and the game leaves you just outside Primus wondering what sort of reception you're going to get on your return...the intimation being that you'll open the airlock door and find that the aliens have wiped the place out.
If I gave scores, this would easily be a 10/10. Great fun and brought back loads of memories. Next up on the randometer is...Subwar 2050. I bought it back in an Electronics Boutique sale while I was at uni, but I've only ever really dabbled with it. It's a bit like an arcadey flight sim but underwater. Should be quite fun.
