This is one of the best shooters on the C64! If you thought there were no bullethell games on the commie - well this certainly is one! Can't believe the sheer amount of ships and rockets and black holes which are fired at me in the later levels. So even if it may look simple during the first two or three levels - hang in there, it gets impossible at some point :D I love it! And I would love to see this on tape by Psytronik, with a nice intro screen and highscore saver ... and then, maybe some day, a second part? With some cool racy music or even speech in it maybe? :D 12/10 points!

It was cleanly programmed. Nice animations and also clean parallax scrolling. Super game idea!

The game is absolutely brilliant! Not a mindless simple shooter but a very clever game concept. Plus nice and stable code even with extremely many bullets and enemies. Would deserve a decent logo and a title screen with music. Of course, for a 16k game it is fantastic just the way it is.

I was impressed with the unconventional pane scrolling with the score/map down the right side. You don't often see that!

Nicely done with good use of parallax starfield.

I would have liked to see some inertia on the movement, but that's just a personal preference I guess.

A good game, reminds me a bit of Hunters Moon / Bosconian for some odd reason.

Nice one. Funny thing though: XKobo was in turn inspired by the classic C64 Hewson game: Sunburst +
Back to the roots with this one I think:)

Awesome game, not so hard to get into and quite addictive. You wrote my favourite assembler AND you port great games too? Thumbs up. :)
