Mankind has been virtually wiped out by an
extraterrestrial armada! Only you, piloting the "Annihilator", can help save
the solar system from ruthless alien domination. Bedlam 2 is a fast action,
arcade-style game with forty-five levels of blistering game play. As you blast
away at the invading forces, your ship moves along the bottom of the screen
while you try to avoid a barrage of enemy firepower, collisions with attacking
ships and the occasional chunk of floating space debris. By racking up points
along the way, you earn much-needed extra ships, and can even capture hunks
of gold bars released when you've demolished the ships of some of the greedy
trespassers. Other fun and nasty surprises materialize during your long mission
to free our galaxy from this evil infestation.
Your first encounter with the alien
aggressors begins near the outer-reaches of the solar system at the
ninth planet, Pluto. If successful, you move inwards to Neptune and
each planet thereafter, until you've kicked all alien butt completely
out of our galaxy! Some of the cool sound effects in the game help
you keep track of your weapon status and any helpful or dangerous
objects that approach your territory. These include special weapon
'containers' that are periodically released for you to try and shoot
open to free and then capture the extra-powerful ammo you need to
pulverize your attackers. There is detailed and interesting
information about each planet as you arrive at its defense, which
helps illuminate our section of the universe for those who have a
hard time keeping track of just how many planets are orbiting the
Bedlam 2 utilizes the latest Quicktime technology for stereo MIDI music and
has full color 3D rendered images as well as many exciting and nerve-wracking
features that will challenge your senses and give your mouse finger
a workout. As you progress beyond each level, obliterating the swarm
of adversaries becomes succeedingly more difficult. The aliens are supplied
with additional hazardous and unpredictable weaponry the nearer you
advance to Mercury. Asteroids, score 'multipliers' and other exciting
objects sometimes appear to help or hinder you on your quest. Each planet
concludes by a battle to the death with the seemingly invincible alien
mothership. Do you have what it takes to save humanity?
