Nothing special about it that I can see.

I'm moving this because this is a PC thingy, it has nothing to do with Amiga Scene.

Been playing it after read ing this thread........

I'll repeat,

Replaced the title music with the actual megablast soundtrack and the ingame music with the Amiga version of the intro.

Now it FEELS like Xenon.

The gameplay is annoying however - I can't stand the way that the very few powerups you collect blow up with contact.

And it suffers from exactly the same problem as the original - die late on in the level and you lose all your weapons, making it near impossible to carry on!

Plus you HAVE to use keys.

Actually, this title had potential as a good homage to the original if someone spent time ironing out the problems and making the play meatier.

Oh well, it's free and the graphics work is nice.

Hummm...

Keep in mind this was done as a games programming tutorial for a mag, i think it's pretty fucking well for such a purpose. As a real game it obviously lacks in many departments.

huh? 2001 ... seriously? well someone (T. R. Schmidt) had asked on EAB in April 2002 if this game was for download and because no one answered, I just guessed it wasn't finished yet.
