JDGames: Take The Challenge

Pheenix: The Next Generation

OVERVIEW

One of my favourite arcade games of the early 1980s was Phoenix and, at the time, Megadodo’s 1983 conversion, called Pheenix, was generally considered one of the best arcade conversions for the ZX Spectrum.

A variant on the Space Invaders theme, you had to fight your way through five levels to kill the alien mothership. Each level brought something new to the game, and provided a slightly different challenge to the one before. It played well, looked good and was hugely playable and addictive.

This remake will retain all the original gameplay elements, with a few tweaks, and combine them with up to date speed, graphics, sound and music.
