The game has several things going for it, even if the graphics look amateurish and you control a silver ball instead of a normal spaceship. The levels are diverse and the physics reasonably realistic. Unfortunately Orb Wars just doesn't offer the same addictiveness as AUTS or V-Wings, mostly because the levels and weapons are not as diverse as those two classics. As it stands, Orb Wars is merely a "good" caveflyer and not an "excellent" one. Try the shareware version before you decide whether or not to register it.
