Description of If It Moves, Shoot It!

If It Moves, Shoot It! is a classic top-down shooter by Emerald Software. The graphics in general are very well drawn, especially the detailed level backgrounds. One of the few classic shoot-em ups on the PC.

The title says it all, I guess. It is up to you to combat the Korts and free the lost settlers on an alien planet that resembles Mars. Newer and more advanced weapons are available as you destroy more waves of aliens. Nothing fancy or unique here, but the game takes the idea of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" to heart and ends up being a very addictive shooter that's easy to get into, but not so easily out of. A must-have for every shooter fan!

I tend to agree with the earlier review. Raising the cycles to over 20,000 didn't make any difference, so it seems to be running at normal speed. Rather an ordinary shooter. I expect the Amiga version would look, sound, and play better.

2 hearts.

Though the graphics look better on the screenshots, it is your typical shoot um up, nothing to brag about. When I played the action was slow, however I was using Boxer and the action might be improved through some tinkering with Boxer. (CPU speed, Frame rate, etc.) I gave the game one star, but again the action was slow. If you are like me and using Boxer you might be able to make it playable. In my opinion it is not worth the effort.
