Description: It was just another day in the year 1956. All of a sudden, siren went off everywhere at the army base Fort Gordon, in the state of Georgia. In the blink of an eye, special force commando, Hecho Blaerion, found himself looking for major covers from a sky full of B-57 bombers. Hecho spotted an empty cave by the side of the mountain. He knew he had to dash for it even at the cost of risking being blown up into pieces on the way. He made it. At least he thought he made it. Next thing he knew, the shock wave from bombs all around him tossed him up in the air and rendered him unconscious. When he woke up, he found himself in a totally different time and space that he couldn’t even use any words to describe. Speechless. He was presented with a menu and a gun. When he stepped on a blue square, a sign whacked him in the face. He fainted. A couple of hours later, he woke up again. This time he was extra careful. The sign told him to shoot something. Suddenly, he was on a platform with ships circling around him. There was one way into this bizarre realm. There has to be one way out only, he figured. The way was to JOIN THE FIGHT with all his guts, a Chinese made a magical shield and a laser gun he called the “Sinistram”. Can he battle his way out of 30 ships, or be blasted to pieces? There is only one way to find out…

Review: Sadly there isn’t a whole lot to see with ‘Elite Encounter’. It’s a static position shooter with a PS1 retro look to it and sadly that is just about it! There is 3 difficulties to choose from which are easy, medium and hard, but I would start with hard and go from there. At least that way you get a good challenge before getting bored with it which will happen quite quickly. It’s just far too unfinished to be worth £3.99, but if you got this for a quid or less you might appreciate it more than I did. It’s not the worst static shooter I have ever seen, but that really doesn’t mean much.
