Tappo II is another fun "caveflier" game from Finland, an action sub-genre that became very popular in that country in the early 1990s. As ever, you maneuver a small ship in tight caverns, blasting other ships to smithereens with a formidable arsenal of weapons while fighting gravity and being careful not to hit the terrain.

As its name implies ('manslaughter' in Finnish), your goal in Tappo II is to kill as many enemies as you can. The game boasts an astounding variety few other cavefliers can match: 25 different spaceships, all of which have different abilities and weapons. Your arenas are caves of the gigantic planet Neraka Prime, each of which contains repairing platforms where you also load up on ammunition, as well as shops which sell upgrades and additional devices for a price. Before you play, you must first choose your identity from a number of pilots. Because each pilot has his/her own strengths, weaknesses and personality, this adds an additional layer of complexity to Tappo II and greatly enhances its replay value.

The game offers three different gameplay modes. The first is melee, where you fight against all other players solo or in a team. The other two modes are tournament play: either you (and another human or computer player) face off against hordes of enemies, or engage in one-to-one space dogfights. You are allowed to upgrade and repair your ship between battles. All things considered, Tappo II is one of the best games of its kind you will ever come across, and especially addictive in its multiplayer modes. Two thumbs up!
