Paratrooper
Review 1:
Yet another of really, really old small games. Paratrooper is quite
simple and easy game to play. You control a big surface cannon
that'sbeing attacked by numerous enemy helicopters, jet planes and
paratroopers. All you have to do is shoot at everything you see and try
to destroy as many paratroopers and bombs as possible.

Review 2:

Before Windmill Software and CHAMProgramming, Orion Software was one of
the first game developers that specialized in creating PC "clones" of
well-known arcade games, usually from the extensive catalogs of Atari,
Taito, or William. Lack of originality or official license
notwithstanding, their games are excellent conversions of famous classics
that, surprisingly enough, often look and play better than official PC
ports. Aside from great gameplay, Orion games are also notable for being
coded with a built-in timer - which means they work at the right speed
even on modern computers. Kudos to the designer Greg Kuperberg for having
such foresight.. it's not so often you find a 1983 game that doesn't need
to be slowed down :-) If you can't get enough of Q*Bert, Pac-Man, or
Paratrooper, check out these excellent classics that truly stand the test
of time.

Review 3:

Where to start with this game??? It's really one of the most simple fun
games I've played when I was 8 or 9. You're a small cannon (really...)
and you have to shoot all paratroopers dropping down out of helicopters.
Also shoot the helicopters and the airplanes that drop bombs. If there
are 4 paratroopers at one side of the cannon, they will kill you. If a
bomb hits you, you will also be dead. Try to shoot the bombs before they
can hit you. It's one of the games that really reminds me of the old
times, with very simple graphics and sound, but still being a very great
game to play! This could be the best game to play if you don't know what
to do and you only have a 386 PC in front of you. Go on! Check it out...
