Game review

Released in 1989 for DOS, Menace is a side-scrolling shoot 'em up game developed by DMA Design, which would later become famous for creating the Grand Theft Auto series. As one of DMA Design's earlier titles, Menace laid the groundwork for the company's future success and showcased their talent in game development.

In Menace, players control a spacecraft navigating through various alien environments, each presented as a distinct level with its unique challenges and enemy types. The game is set on the fictional planet Draconia, where players embark on a mission to destroy the planet's defense systems.

The gameplay of Menace is typical of the shoot 'em up genre, with players moving horizontally across the screen while dodging enemy fire and obstacles. The spacecraft can be equipped with different weapons and power-ups, enhancing its firepower and offering strategic choices for players. These power-ups include speed boosts, stronger weapons, and protective shields. Each level introduces a variety of enemy spacecraft, turrets, and other hazards, all designed to test the player's reflexes and shooting accuracy. The game requires players to learn enemy patterns and navigate through tight spaces, making for an engaging and sometimes difficult experience.

Graphically, Menace is impressive for its time, with detailed sprites and backgrounds that create a vivid and immersive alien world. The visual effects of explosions, weapon fire, and enemy designs contribute to the game's sci-fi aesthetic.

Upon its release, Menace received praise for its solid shoot 'em up mechanics, challenging levels, and impressive visuals. It was recognized as a quality title in the genre and helped establish DMA Design as a capable and innovative game developer.
