Each week for Arcade Gems we highlight lesser-known, must-play titles. These games are favorites of those in-the-know, and, once you give them a try, we think you’ll agree that they’re worthy classics.
This week’s Arcade Gem is Terranean (1980)
Terranean is a scrolling shooter. Xeno-biological aliens are attacking Earth and the player must stop them with a rocket armed with bullets and flash bombs. Each 3-wave level features aliens with varying movement patterns that can destroy your rocket with collision or missiles. Defend the planet and prevent enemies from defeating Earth’s shields!
