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

S KEY = MEGA CANNON (must try this!)

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.

Ow, my trigger finger

Great game, first off. I'm a personal fan of the 8-bit goodness of the olden days and I can't say no to a round of Captain Low-Rez. That last boss messed me up something fierce. I wish I had my mega cannon. However, I do think it would have been nice to move a little bit up and down to dodge the enemies that go around the bottom of the screen, looking to ram me. Didn't take away from the game, though.

Oh god, it brings back memories of Galaga. Well, keep up the good work and don't stop the old school games from coming. I beat the game and the last boss was phenominal! My only complaint was that it isn't long enough, but that just stems from me wanting more....MORE!!!!!! All hail Happytron!!!!!!
