Game Tunnel's Action Game Of The Year

"The gameplay is simply fantastic, offering up fast-paced shooting action that is exciting, rewarding and relentless. The graphics are amazingly good, belying the games 15mb size. The range of enemies and weapons complete the game as a tour de force that was an easy pick as our 2007 Action Game of the Year!"

Big Chip 10 Awards Game Of The North

"This year's Big Chip Game of the North award is the first Big Chip awards to be open to entries from outside the North West region. The winner here (Darkside) was chosen for its playability, slick build and good use of graphics. An all-round great game showing you don't need huge teams and budgets to create something stylish and playable."

AVault's Top Casual Games Of The Year Winner

"There are three play modes: missions mode, where you battle through 100 levels with varying objectives; arcade mode, where you use your twitch skills to get as far as you can with just three lives; and survival mode, where you get to see how long you can last with just one life against an endless stream of enemies ... It's really fun having to avoid being demolished by both space rocks and aliens."
