Remake of the 8-bit Cecco classic.

Take control of a futuristic soldier across 5 flick-screen levels of gameplay filled with alien nasties as well as gun emplacements, missiles, landmines and other hazards. Defend yourself with both your gun and rocket-propelled bombs.

Partway through each level is a pod in which you can upgrade to an armoured exoskeleton with improved weapons and armour. Completing a level without this upgrade results in a "bravery bonus".

Nice game. Reviewed on my page.

Thanks for the memories!! <3

Hi, cool Game but is it possible to bring a version with limited lives?

Very nice Action game. Our German-language review can be found in our recorded livestream starting at 02:34:34. Subscription to our YouTube or Twitch channel is welcome. 🙂

Very nicely done. I was a big fan of Exolon on the Spectrum, and Raffaele Cecco's games. The remixed title screen music was so good I listened to it twice.

This is a great homage. There are some changes from the original game, none of which are negative but it is worth being aware of them.

- Unlimited lives (meaning I could complete the game in one sitting - great!)

- Destroying radar towers doesn't stop the missiles (but missiles can now be shot).

- A more generous zone for stopping the wave of aliens.

- Unlimited bullets, and bullets can be used instead of missiles to destroy things.

Really enjoyable blast from the past. Thank you!

(I played it on Linux Mint, it worked perfectly via wine.)

Good Job! Nicely paced and fun too play!

You have done a fantastic job doing this! Is so wonderful to see what was my favorite speccy game of all time remade perfectly.

Simply wonderful! Congratulations.

i really love it though the walking speed i think is to slow

Awesome game !

Very fun game. I enjoyed it a lot. Great job! 

Hi Ben ! My sincere congrats ! One question I got level 50 and then screen stuck in black screen and couldn´t continue playing it. Is there an error to load the game ?Far apart from this question. Your version is a master piece. Greetings.

Sorry that happened to you! I don't know why. Glad you enjoyed the game nonetheless.

Really fun and so nostalgic! Does the game have an ending?

Yes; as with the original, this version has 125 'zones' after which the game is completed.

I had a lot of fun playing it! Great work!

very good

This might be my favorite version of this game. Well done!

Gracias por el juego
