Nailed the reto feel perfectly. Reason I bought originaly was to say a belated thank you for the work that was done on an old favorate of mine (Harlequin on the Amiga). However this is a blinder of a game in its own right. If you gamed in the 80s you will be grinning from ear to ear or if you just want a cracking little shooter you can't go wrong with this. Thanks 😀
Edit2: Hurray! Ratings up where it belongs! Huzzah, all hail Lord Suminell! Edit: Completely fixed! Brilliant! All pilots have received their tactical control modules. Rejoice or Repent. Cling not to hope. In the beginning there was light, in the end, all that remains and ever shall be, is Z. //// The game is fantastic, with a rather dark humor that I find delightful. I always loved Invader Zim (no relation lol), and being the antivillain. There's nothing good or evil about this universe. You just kill and conquer. You're not savages, not monsters, yet you're a nightmare to the denizens of the universe. It's quite a departure from Gradius let me tell you. My only complaint (Update: Controls rehauled, Drag controls rock) are controls are unnecessarily retro. Hitting forward and back makes it travel there automatically until stopped by going up or down. This makes things very uncomfortable in tight spaces. Which as a badass you find yourself in quite a bit (heyo). The crt frame.... The damn frame... I'm sorry but it's too much wasted space. I don't mind the 4:3, but you're already denying me 33% of left and right viewing space, do I need the bottom bezel too? Even with it off, it's still so small. I know you're capturing a feeling... But I promise you, launch Mame and load Rtype on your phone and trust me... It'll still be there even full screen and. Least make it scalable? Thank you for gamepad support. Was really needed. Though is the game meant to have autoacceleration (left and right movement sticking) like that? I'd love for there to be a second fire button as well, or adjustable engine speed (Like Thunder Force is famous for). Is it obvious I'm excited for the game? I think it is. Haha.
Congratulations on creating one of the best retro shmups I have played for a long time
On of the best shooters around. Got it both on steam and my mobile device. A true old school shooter with a modern twist. Can do with drag controls similar to skyforce and in-game pause. Still great.
Excellent game well done guys! Grew up with the Spectrum so appreciate the effort to make this game as authentic feeling as possible. Well not too authentic, suggest you keep the loading times as they are i.e. under 5 mins :-) Hooked up a Moga Pro and it works great. Only suggestion would be to remove the Fire button from the screen as an option when using a controller.
Thanks for the changes and your support. That's much better.
