Typhoon


Typhoon (c) 1987 Konami.


Take control of a powerful helicopter and blast enemy strongholds in this superb shooter from the good folks at Konami. Ajax features some impressive graphics filled with rotation and scaling effects (some may get a little dizzy, though!), a solid soundtrack and excellent game control. Highly recommended for any shoot'em up enthusiast!
