Thumbs up Proof Of Destruction

My favourite Shmup? Proof Of Destruction (POD) of course on C64! This neat 'Minter-esque' shoot'em up was originally written in 1986 by Shaun Southern (Magnetic Fields) on the C64 for Mastertronic.
POD is extremely simple to get into but impossible to finish. The action takes place on a static screen where you control a little pod on a raster. From all sides of the screen little ships and creatures crawl and shoot to you. The aim is to survive an attack wave until time runs out. The game features some whirring background colours which add to the hypnotic atmosphere.

I know Shaun Southern has written an Amiga update of POD for CU Amiga in 1992 but this copy is difficult to find.
