Get this: You're on a mission of the utmost importance. Armed to the teeth with high-tech, devilish devices of destruction, you must navigate your mighty spaceship into unfriendly territory and face the crimson face of death. And, if that's not crazy enough, you're not even human! You're a feisty feline with a leather jacket! Hold on for a second while I catch my breath.

If this scenario sounds really cool to you, then you don't get out enough. Interpose is another side-scrolling shooter in a long line of uninspired Darius rip-offs, totally devoid of originality and flair. To be fair, I will say that Interpose does have some intriguing 3-D graphics as well as an above-par soundtrack and some interesting cinematics, but these facets fall well short of the bells and whistles needed to make this game worth even one look.

What's the storyline? It's really not important. Besides, after playing this no-brainer for only a few minutes, you'll be completely zoned out, unable to remember your own name, much less the convoluted plot of this yawner. What you do need to know is that everything on the screen must be shot. Erase a string of baddies with your cannon, and you'll uncover a coin or a power-up, to be collected. Hold onto your coins so you can pull into the local chop shop and upgrade your ship and weapons. This will also give you a chance to check out the Manx who curates the store - very cute, but not enough to make it worth your purchase price.

Try your best to avoid this one. You'd be pretty bitter having paid for this porkchop.
