People have been asking about the Plus, non plus, so this should clear it up.


Both the previous Gifs were from the 6128 PLUS version

This one is from the 6128 - NON plus version

Notice the Life icons are skulls - they are hearts on the plus (I couldn't do a heart without red and purple!)


Apart from that, and the fact the player sprites are 4 color - everything else is identical!

Ok, a quick update on the game. I've been working hard on it the last two days, and things are going well.


I'm pretty sure I will have squashed all the bugs I can find soon, so I'm going to set a release date in stone.


The game will come out on December 31st


In the meantime, here's a few teasers!


CPC game Reviews has been kind enough to try a preview version of the game:

Here's an Anigif of Level 2 (Zombie forest level) action:


I'm keeping the remaining 3 boss battles secret - so you'll have to wait and see  ;D





I've also updated the website with a playing guide, there's a description of the powerups, some basic playing tips, and an "Enemy Roster" (currently Level 1 only)


I would have liked to have an end sequence showing all the enemies like Super Mario, but DiskSpace and Enthusiasm were too lacking for such a task!

It's great on so many levels !
-> Great to see a polished new game released in 2016/2017 on the good old 8bit Amstrad.
-> Great to see a new genre (bullet hell shooter) on the CPC.
-> Great to see japanese creative people appropriating the foreign machine.

My hope now is that we will see more japanese style genres coming to the CPC in the future: Zelda-like, Metal Gear Solid-like, Final Fantasy-like ...
The sky's the limit!

Thanks for you're kind comments! but just to set the record straight, I'm an Englishman living in Japan, I'm not Japanese
I've been living over here for 5 years, been studying Japanese for over 10 - the game takes a lot of influence from horror Manga and japanese shooters though - I wonder how many CPC's there are in the country - I've never seen one in the retro stores - maybe I have the only two!

The next game (episode 2) will be a straight upgrade to this one, but after that I want to try to bring some other new game types to the CPC, or do weird spoofs of existing ones!
