Baryon is a straightforward vertical shooter which features a smooth graphical engine, a short digital sound track and various types of enemies. There are two types of ships, each with its own weapon types, as well as missile upgrades (homing as well as regular, more powerful ones), bombs and shield.The shareware version of Baryon features only one level, but the registered version promises more action-packed levels with more enemy types.
One of the best top-down shooters ever made, but also one of the most unknown due to lack of distribution, Baryon takes you on a cruise through alien-infested territory as you collect power-ups and shoot everything in sight. Gameplay is fast-paced shooting action, presented with attractive graphics and endless variety of enemies. With an assortment of powerups similar to those found in Raiden, your screen can quickly fill up with enemy fire and explosions. Quick manuevering in avoiding fire will be essential to successfully reaching the big bad boss that usually reside at the end of the level.
Baryon may not have the sharper graphics found in today's arcade games, but the action and the powerup bonuses makes it worthwhile and enjoyable. With great gameplay and solid graphics (and even a good soundtrack) that rival the best of commercial shooters, Baryon is a must have for all action fans.
