(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.

The concept was good, a run and gun old fashioned shooter with constant level ups and simple mechanics. Unfortunately, while the first level seemed promising, some glitches and minor mistakes made it unbelievably frustrating at times.

Area 2-1 is unplayable. You jump once and are stuck in midair, you can move left and right and shoot, but you cant move up or down or jump, just flying in midair until the bottom of the screen catches up and throws you to the top of the screen again. Please fix this so I can actually play it, was really fun until that.

Game seems really nice, especially since i LOVED Gunstar Heroes.
2 great flaws. No diagonal shooting, no control remapping.
3.5 stars.

Would have donated but you are accepting Euros only. If it doesn't make it repost it accepting Us Dollars. Other wise amazing game and music.

4 and haif stars merely because no diagonal shot. it does add to the difficulty but feels as though you should shoot diagonally. You really pulled off the old school snes feel though. kinda like a cross between contra for the powerups and megaman for the life bar and enemies. Very nicely done I look forward to playing all of your games.
