Right, so I fired up my tape drive, and up next, we seemed to be loading “NOU”. The only thing I could think of was the word “Nougat”. Had Cascade somehow contrived to create a game based on confectionery? It was one hell of a long tape load, so I was expecting greatness. Oh, Cascade how you taunt me with omens of goodness!

Cascade 50: Psion Attack

Judging from the main menu, Psion attack doesn’t know whether it’s called Psion Attack or Zion Attack, but I’m pretty sure it wants to be called Cylon Attack and they changed the name to avoid getting sued, because the one thing that looks like a sprite looks like one of those cylon things from Battlestar Galactica.

Personally, I would have liked it to be called Zion Attack, because that would be topical and potentially edgy, although I suppose now “The Matrix” has poisoned that particular well.
