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.

Ahh the good ol' days

Well developed. Everything reminded me of the old school games, except for the voices...... Good game, keep up the good work.

Excelent work!

this is one of the best side scroller shooting games I have played in a long time! The graphics had a great old school look and the A.I was smart enough to move around alot, but the best part is the game play is rock solid.

Very retro

And very nice. And who doesn't like a well made shooter. Don't get to see these very often anymore. The extra features of the ship were a nice touch, being able to absorb energy kinda like the G-Darius alpha beam. And the small file size helps the narrowband users quite a bit. This game comes as a pleasant surprize after seeing the lastest captain low res episode. Although the game could stand to be just a little harder, I loved every minute of it. Very good job!
