Strider reviews

Zero Magazine Issue 1 (1990): "US Gold's conversion of Capcom's classic coin-op Strider has those nasty Ruskies as the baddies again, with Strider, as a kind of futuristic Rambo, waging a one-man battle against the evil Commies.
It's essentially a horizontally scrolling shoot 'em up on five levels and your task is to infiltrate the Red Army and then return its secrets back to your superiors thus saving the western world no less. To do so, you have to slash your way through all manner of foes including a giant robot ape, a pack of vicious sabre-toothed tigers, Russian guards and some lethal boomerang throwing rock men."
