Legendary Wings follows the quest of two winged warriors, sent by the war god Ares in what appears to be ancient times to destroy an alien supercomputer (um, sure). The plot is not the game's only mashup – while the primary game is a vertically scrolling shoot-em-up, the protagonists are occasionally sucked into side-scrolling platform-based levels where they must fight various mythical enemies on foot. Though the graphics have a pleasant mid-80s feel, the game comes from a somewhat awkward period in which shoot-em-ups were often very difficult simply due to incredibly sluggish player controls and fast enemies, and the platform levels are underdeveloped and similarly difficult to control. If you're willing to adapt to the controls, the game itself is an enjoyable excursion that combines ancient Greece with aliens in a fun way.
