Attention span: 9/10 Games are short and full of strategy. I can play this for hours.
Controls: 10/10 Responsive and 2 or 4 button choice.
Implementation: 9/10 Simple graphics, but great options
Overall: 9/10 The best tron game out there.

The release of super tron came very soon after tron89. The games are very similar looking, but the differences add up. For those of you who don't know, tron is a game where you and a friend control moving dots that leave walls behind them wherever they go. The object is to last as long as you can and force your opponent to hit a wall.

Compared to tron89, this game has a lot of advantages. The interface is great. The greyscale pic at the title screen and the menus make it look professionally done. Inside the actual game, there is a bar at the top which shows your scores. The controls can be two-button (turn left or right) or four button (press the dir you want to go), so its not confusing for everyone. The controls are a lot more responsive than those of tron89. I find it a lot easier to do last-second turns.

After playing super tron for a few hours today, I came to find a few small problems. I find that the "bikes" start too close to the side walls. It is minor, and you only notice it after playing for hours. It seems to separate the top and bottom halves almost automatically by having the bikes start so close to the walls. This limits the complexity of the games you can have.
