SPACE DUNGEON / Taito / Arcade
With Space Dungeon, Taito once again apes a popular game yet introduces an innovative new concept simultaneously. In this case, Berzerk, and the use of two sticks for moving and firing separately. And once again, it comes out as kind of a bizarre and unplayable mishmosh.
The concept here is fine - move room to room in Berzerk style trying to find the Treasure Room on each level, fire in 8 directions with the other stick - but the game is killed by so many random and unpredictable deaths. Nearly every room has turrets in the corners that fire unpredictably, and some little green Evil Otto type character is constantly spawning and hunting you to your death (except he appears sooner and much more frequently than Evil Otto.)
