(This game is a tribute to Gunstar Heroes and all the classics that my favourite game company Treasure made. It's also got little shout outs to over games as well.)

Yes, I know stuff is missing and some stuff could be done better, but it's just a little flash project I wanted to really do for myself. It's a mix between, Gunstar, Megaman and Contra.)

(If you like this game, or any classic 16 bit, run 'n' gun games, please help me fund a fully featured game through Kickstarter!)

:Overview:
Well, it's finally done. I know it's a bit late but I ran into some issues like you do. Anyway it's all there, four big levels, lots of bosses and some retro action sprinkled on top.

It's pretty difficult but there is unlimited continues to counter balance that aspect. I've added medals and extras to unlock for you peeps who enjoy that sort of thing.

It's a big, CPU heavy game, so if you're experiencing lag, you can download the standalone offline exe for free. (You could also resize the game by 2x to it's native 320x224 resolution.)

Here is the stand-alone:

Anyway, I hope you like it, it took a while to make and I have put a lot of effort into this, (about four months worth really.) So yeah, hope you enjoy.

Fabulous game! The controls and play-style are simple and easy to learn and rather than making the sixteen bit graphics feel antiquated, the game's design made them feel welcome in a retro-esque type of way. The silly hairstyles made me like the game even more, and my only complaint would be that gun that looks a bit like a dick. Just a minor issue though.

There's some time and effort put into this game and a great artstyle, but besides the slightly slippery controls the thing that kills it is the cheap difficulty. There's waaaay too much unavoidable damage. I get you're trying to make this arcade like, but those games were designed to steal money from people. This is a flash game, it doesn't need to be that annoyingly difficult

It's so much fun to play. Even again and again:)
The control is very accurate. The levels short but beautiful and varied designed. For this, the bosses are even more bigger. I would say: Just the thing for 16bit fans and oldschool gamers.

Can't wait for the sequel. If you like Sole Gunner too, just look at the Kickstarter project "Twin Gunners".
Bigger, better, 2player, diagonal fire and more... Sinclair put a link at the startscreen of the flash game.

The stand-alone version never unlocks the 4th stage, even if you beat the first 3 all in one go.
