[Found: Escape From the Planet of the Robot Monsters] fun shooting alien/zombie game

Here's another one folks.

This was a birds-eye view shooting game which I think was pretty well known and popular back in the day. I remember you'd kill aliens or zombies and your character would have to pass into rooms, buildings and things avoiding doors or spikes that would kill you.

I remember that in between some levels you'd fly your ship through a series of corridors and you'd only have a certain amount of time to find the right exit.

Does anybody remember that?

The first part sounds like Alien Breed, but there are no corridor flying scenes. Will think about it...

It wasn't Alien Breed, but that is a good guess!

This was 1 of the games that came with my original A500 Pack. I had great fun with it at 1AM Christmas day (I couldnt wait and stayed up to open what I thought to be an Atari STE, turned out to be an Amiga 500).

Expecting an Atari STE and instead getting an Amiga 500 must have been MIND BLOWING for you! Probably the greatest Christmas you have EVER had hey!?

Why? A nice example of a 28" 4:3 CRT. Cost £60 in 2002. A far cry from the £1000 of most new TV's.

Retired last year, the tube is now heading for my Mame cab.

lol, I was joking, . Nothing wrong with CRT's you will never beat CRT RGB, unless you spend loads on HD TV and HD sources. Pointless in my opinion.
