Terraforming is a frantic horizontal shooter by Right Stuff, famous because desiged by the amazing american designer and futuristic concept artist Syd Mead best known for his work done for Ridley Scott's movie Blade Runner or other major features like Tron, Star Trek, 2010 or Aliens. The action takes place on an alien planet, and you fight your way against flying creatures of all kind and through seven long and intense stages. The goal of the game, as the title may suggest, is to terraform the alien world, which kind of mean cleaning it up and get it ready for the Colonial fleet from earth. This is kind of nasty. Anyway, the game offers three different weapons, from homing, spread gun and laser. The main weapon can also be charged in a way similar to R*Type. The speed of your ship can also be changed during the game by pressing select, this burst can also be used against enemies.
