As a member of an elite force assigned to eliminate threats to the common good, the action is fast and furious in Ajax. With game play reminiscent of many games of its time such as Xevious and Raiden, the theater is primarily a vertically-scrolling 2D shoot-4em-up. You control a super helicopter over varied landscapes, destroying air and land targets to progress toward the boss aircraft which await you at the end of each level. Action over the course of the game switches to a pseudo-3D attack with a jet as you dive toward numerous land- and water-based fortresses. Gameplay is accented by various power-ups, which are awarded when you destroy red aircraft and their formations. You can gain such weapons as a laser, a vulcan cannon, and super bombs, as well as general strengthening of the stock weapons your aircraft carries. ~ Paul Biondich, All Game Guide
