Stargunner [GAMES]

Tonight I finished another one of the games available for free download from Good Old Games, Stargunner.  I've been playing this game off and on for a full year now, so there's a sense of accomplishment in finally finishing the damn game.  Stargunner is a straight shooter: you get a spaceship, and your sole job is to blow up enemy spaceships until you reach the boss and blow it up.  There's the usual array of power-ups and the ability to customize your ship's weapons using credits earned on previous levels, but truthfully there's nothing particularly original or interesting about the game.  That being said, it's freakin' hard.  Once I learned I could save in the middle of a level I made huge steps forward, but definitely not a game
for the easily frustrated.
