"Attack of the Mutant Killer Bingo Wings!" is a game inspired by the classic 8-bit shooters of the 80s that came with a massively overblown story line on the inside of the cassette cover that the poor, underpowered 8-bit processor backed up by a meagre amount of RAM could never hope to replicate but contained preposterous enemies with some fun and compelling game play - and all at a £1.99 price tag too!
I'd really appreciate any feedback you'd like to leave. I'm a little concerned that the bingo game mechanic is slightly confusing at first and may put players off - I guess I hope people stick with it :-)
Anyway here's the full story...
The Earth is a noisy planet. For decades a vast array of signals have been carelessly spreading from our world into the ether. We're about to find out that other worlds are listening...and in a terrible coincidence one planet has taken offence at the liberties being taken with it's deities.
The denizens of Bingonia have for centuries worshipped their many and varied Gods; Kelly's Eye, One Little Duck and Snakes Alive amongst others. So when the systems monitoring the skies of Bingonia began picking up signals from a small world at the outer reaches of the galaxy, indicating that the intricate numerology behind the Bingonian beliefs were being used as the basis for a form of primitive gambling, there was only one course of action available; the Bingonians dispatched their elite fighting force, the Bingo Wings, to destroy the Earth - and now only you stand in the Bingonians way!
