Thrax Lair

Fie on your spaceships, I say, the true shoot ’em up connoisseur takes control of pterodactyl-esque creatures and uses them to penetrate deep inside their enemies’… err, lairs!

Well, okay, maybe not, but that’s the setup for Thrax Lair, anyway, in which you control a “Tarp”, a winged creature capable of firing lasers from its eyes with a strong (and eminently justifiable) grudge against the spider-like Thrax.

Gameplay-wise, it’s a bit like¬†River Raid,¬†but with enough unique elements about it to make it worth a look — even if it might not be the most flashy game the Atari 8-bit ever offered!
