That looks like the player's ship from Galaga, but I don't think it's that. But that'll have to be my guess.

An old 8bit console (SEGA SG1000) or playTV game?

I thought it looked like a Spectrum game, but if it's console I'm not sure...

It does look a bit like 'Chrimblast' (2015) on the Spectrum but to be honest if it is a homebrew title I'm never going to get it! :wink:

Can we safely assume it's on an Atari system?

It's time for my 'let's not let this post die' post.

How about a more obvious clue? - I don't think anyone's going to get this one otherwise...

Nope. It's a Master System game and it was never released in the west.

Is it 'Star Soldier' on the Master System (only released in Taiwan I believe)?
