N2O: Nitrous Oxide offers a sickeningly effective approximation, letting players pilot a Tunnel Runner ship through levels that mainly consist of twisty tubes with psychedelic light patterns flashing on the walls. N2O is one of those old-school games that left us shaking our heads after our first pathetic attempt to successfully navigate the tunnels. The enemies just seemed too fast and too numerous. After an hour of practice we were in the fabled "zone," anticipating the moves of the enemy and effortlessly rotating around the tunnel walls as we racked up higher and higher scores. As with most simplistic arcade games of this type, N2O can get repetitive, but we found that it was perfect for a quick arcade gaming fix. Most arcade action game fans (especially those who remember Tempest) should find N2O's decent graphics, numerous weapon power-ups, and adrenaline-pumping soundtrack to their liking. --T. Byrl Baker Pros: Nonstop, mindless action Tight controls Nice soundtrack Cons: Repetitive gameplay Graphics can be a little sickening
