(The game has two parts, a Sanxion-style shmup and the cute platformer bit. The sprites in that section use multiple overlays to create a really detailed look.)


Someone else can post the next one.
Correct.

Aye, Vulcan it is. Still play it today and it is still as good as ever. Possibly the best strategy game (along with Rebelstar) on the Speccy.

I think RPrime as made that screeny himself. :?

Oh yeah, Vulcan - of course. If I'd thought for a second to wikipedia the Von Broich division, I would have known they were in North Africa, not Arnhem which is in the Netherlands. Doh.
