+ Not actually a shoot-'em-up, as the author, Dan Gorlin, pointed out in
+ [his interview for Halcyon Days](http://www.dadgum.com/halcyon/BOOK/GORLIN.HTM):
+
+ > I like it because it's unique, the gameplay is simple but infinitely
+ > variable, and for me the characters really come to life. Some people
+ > mistook it for a shooter at the time, but it's really more like a game
+ > of Blitzkrieg Chess. If you just start blasting you lose immediately.
+ > Each kind of enemy has moves it can make, and the player has his
+ > moves, but things never happen the same way twice. It's not high
+ > concept in the way that "Choplifter" is, but rather a kind of art piece.
