Dank der "c64 Spielzeit" von Andira wurde ich auf diese Spiel aufmerksam gemacht und musste es sofort kaufen! 

Die verschiedenen Spielabschnitte sind eine Homage an bekannte Spiele-Klassiker und schaffen es dabei trotzdem genügend Alleinstellungsmerkmale aufzuweisen. Das ist nicht einfach zu erreichen und verdient großen Respekt! 

Saul Cross hat malwieder einen atemberaubenden Soundtrack kreiert und dass dieser im download inkludiert ist macht mich sehr glücklich. Tausend Dank dafür! 

Die künstlerische Gestaltung ist der Hammer und das Handbuch lässt keine Wünsche übrig. Man merkt mit wie viel liebe es gestaltet wurde. 

Alles in allem ein gut abgerundetes Spiel. 

Klare Kaufempfehlung! 


The review of Andira made me buy this Game immediately. 

The different game-sections pay an homage to classic games we all know and love and manage to distinguish themself enough from them to be something different. A hard task that was executed very well! Respect! 

Saul Cross yet again created a breathtaking soundtrack and the fact that it is included in the download makes me realy happy. Thanks alot for that! 

The artwork is stunning and the manual is on point. You can feel the love that went into the process of making it. 

Long story short:

A well polished game! 

You should buy it! 


Is there any chance of a patch which adds the option to reverse up and down on the turret sections (so it's like it was in Beach Head)?

You'll soon be able to rate and review this game on Lemon64!

Great game! Love it!

Looking forward to getting my boxed cartridge version.

Love it !


Stuart Collier hat ein richtig tolles Sci-Fi-Action-Adventure herausgebracht mit mehreren kleinen Minispielen. 🕹

Auf meinem YouTube Kanal habe ich es im Rahmen der C64 Spielzeit vorgestellt. Schaut doch mal vorbei:

Hi, it is a great game. It works as expected. The only issue I am having is sound. Music is somehow distorted on my c64 maxi. I am wondering whether there are some settings that need to be changed.

Nice graphics, and atmospheric sound. There is some variety in the game, although it took me a long time to work out how to destroy the lights on the alien ships. Just as I nearly completed that phase, I had lost my last life. Quite addictive :) I'll be playing it again this Christmas. Well done team!

It´s very similar to Raid over Moscu.

and beach head lol. Looks like its got a bit of homage to other games :)

Cool game but there are a few tiny things I'd appreciate to be improved:
- Faster movement of targeting cross on SPACE MAP when selecting next target (feels like taking ages). Starting point closer to the enemy planet after SPACE BATTLE might also do the job.
- A little hooray jingle when finishing a stage (for motivation)
- Fixing screen glitches at CABAL stage and last TANK stage (redish one).

This is an awesome game. Playing on my C64 using pi1541. Great graphics, very good gameplay and three difficulty settings means that this game is for everyone. A great buy. I wish there was a crt file for download also, so I could play it with my Kung Fu flash cart.

A really good quality release, and great fun to play 👍

Hi, thanks for the great feedback! And the good news is we will be making a .crt version available in the download bundle in the next few days. Stay tuned for updates!

Hi, love the game so far and it works on my Kung Fu flash however when bombing the fleet none of the shots register? Same on maxi

Hi, you need to use the distance indicator on the panel to see how far away your shots are going. Increase or decrease the angle of your gun until the distance reaches zero.

Got it thank you, didn't realise u need to be extremely accurate! Very cool. Reminds me of the archery in Iron Lord. Terrestrial is awesome, thanks for all your hard work.

Thank you for the easy flash cartridge file.

And merry Christmas! 🎄

Brilliant! I really enjoyed it and here is my playthrough.

Cool game, I've played it on my SixtyClone - this is the video I've made (German language):

Works great on my NTSC C128 and C64, also the D64 worked great with my Kung Fu Flash

I advice you to share a demo. Great work.

Great game! I am really satisfied!

it will be nice a pdf manual with the D64 file thanks.

Great epic intro, good gameplay at start, works well on real hardware my C64G, this evening i will show on twitch (Alextiger71) and soon i upload the video to youtube, thanks!

Great game! Thank you. A cartridge file (easyflash) for download would be nice.

very good

Awesome game!

I am blown away - excellent work. I hope we will see more games 

This is one amazing game!

Ooooh, this one looks great!

More C64 releases! Omnomnom!
