I wanted to like Yarozians. I’m a big Galaxian fan, but this isn’t Galaxian.

Sure there are similarities. You have an army of aliens ahead of you that will swoop down and try and kill you. The fireworks sound and visuals when you shoot them is a nice touch. It’s polished and reasonably fun to play.

I think my problem is with Yarozians, is that it’s not near enough to Galaxian or far enough away from Galaxian to be worth while replaying. Whereas an earlier Yaroze game I played (INVS), I would certainly play again. Lots.
