I guess this game never came to public after all this years, right?

While The One gave it just 62%, that review actually made me want to try the game very badly since I first read it. The screenshots make it look really good (and, of course, hyping Project X just shows how the reviewer has no idea of what makes a good shmup)

Can we try to contact the programmer once again and see if we can get the hands on this?

Whatever is easiest for you. Someone can upload it elsewhere then if needed, with your permission of course.

Had a quick look and I liked it so far.

One question, what is the training mode?

Thanks for uploading this!!
Another lost game recovered.

I narrowly managed to get past the first level (after much suffering), but when inserting disk two and showing a loading screen, it crashed, though. Is the game completable in any way?

Also is there music in it?

Did not crash for me. Using WinUAE with A500 quickstart configuration with 1 Mb of Fast Ram added. Also have three floppy drives enabled.

Just finished level 3 (which is a bonus level). Will continue tomorrow. Great game. Thanks Cornishflipper

Maybe because I had an A1200 config then.

Level 1 was hard enough to pass for me to try again. Game unfortunately has all the problems of european shmups. I guess it is unavoidable, when your points of reference are bad shooters (like Project X), you can t avoid but commiting similar mistakes. I can see that the game takes after Project X A bit and sadly hinders it.

Anyway, this is what was the norm back then, makes total sense! Just some commentary. I still, like Shatterhand, long for a proper, japanese-style-inspired shooter to come out for the Amiga one day, since it has nothing to do with the tech (we have more than enough to work with here), but about game design.

The you tube video above brings back how tough it is...

It needs kickstart 1.3 to ensure no crashes.

Took a lot of time to get the balance and waves sequenced...

I have now played it through. Game is rather short for a 3 disk game. The first level is the hardest because you start with a so weak weapon.

Things noticed:

- The first level using smaller screen
- Score counter not working on A1200/AGA (yeah i know, this is not a bug - it's a A500 game!)
- Graphics glitches if you choose music in menu (happens even on A500)
- No ending? Just highscore?
- Some glitches on the bonus level
- I shoot most enemies and collected points and still got a poor rating in the highscore table?
