Programmed by Tom Fulp, this game is like Atari on acid!

A KEY = SHOOT
S KEY = MEGA CANNON (must try this!)
DOWN KEY = SHIELDS
LEFT & RIGHT = MOVE SHIP

Your shield absorbs enemy life to raise your own health. The more you charge your shield, the bigger the impact!

Also, your Mega Cannon is enhanced when you have a fully charged shield!

The Captain Low-Rez series originally appeared on Newgrounds in January of 2001, but was never submitted via the Portal. It is in the process of being moved into the Portal system, for consistency.

Aaaaaah too fast!!!

This was well made and all, and it deserves a good score. However, it's just me, but everything moves too fast, it's so easy to get hurt. I don't really like games like that, but then I don't really play computer games at all, so whatever.

Very fun.

That is possibly the best vertically scrolling shooting game I've played on Newgrounds. It looks terrible initially, but after the first sub-boss you can ignore how shitty the game looks. The bosses were very cool, although pretty easy since I've encountered most of those patterns in similar games for the NES. The ending was terrible as could be expected from a game such as this. Overall I really enjoyed it.

Yeah, I gave a 10 on graphics. And what?!

Can't NOBODY talk shit now about The Captain Low-Rez series! This game was on of the tytest, and most entertaining games on this site! The sheild (I just KNOW I spelled that wrong) idea was inovative and original, and the enemies and boss intros were cool. Not to mention, that was the best use of those style graphics, and the game all worked! The effects were right-on also! I say give Alien Hominid a market partner. Give R-Type some competition. Sell this GAME!!
