I played this game years ago when it came out and enjoyed it.
Recently played it again and loved it just as much as ever. Possibly the perfect level of complexity and difficulty in a side-scrolling, shoot-em-up platformer.
Good stuff.

No, I won't replay the level for the umptieth time ... Had wished for a check point inside every level from which you could start in case of death.

Really loved this game! Awesome job. Super fun and definitely had the nostalgic vibe I'm sure you were going for. I will definitely be returning to play more of this!

Not bad. This looks like from an old gaming system I recall but Idon't remember what its called.

Wow, fantastic tribute to Exolon, one of my favourite C-64 games back at the late 80's. I think it was also released on Spectrum and Amstrad because I've met so many people who played it back then and still remember it. Maybe its the bright colours and the cool drawing on the box.
