Editors' Review

+
The mildly addictive Orbital Sniper places you above a crowded cityscape where throngs of normal citizens in gray mingle with a smattering of "VIPs" in blue and "dissidents" in red. You move a crosshair around the screen, zooming in and out with the right mouse button and firing with the left. Your job is to kill the dissidents before they can get to the VIPs. The game starts out easy but quickly gets harder as more and faster VIPs and dissidents take to the streets, and you'll have to prioritize targets, a bit like in the classic Missile Command. The graphics are passable, the sound less so. At minimum zoom, the city looks slightly fuzzy, like a satellite photograph. Close up, though, you can hardly tell the rooftops from the sidewalks. Also, shooting a dissident produces only a red blot and an odd honking sound. Still, it's not bad for a one-time work break.
