This game came courtesy of my buddy Fragems for the Racketboy Secret Santa in July, and it feels like it was made specifically for me. There's really not a lot of depth to this game. In terms of core gameplay, it's a shmup, and it's an okay one. It's certainly not as amazing as Blazing Lasers or Truxton, but it's not bad. My only real gripe with it is the first level. It legitimately gives me a headache just playing it. The background is supposed to be water, but it's got columns of what are basically blue arrows going in alternating directions (one goes up, the next goes down, the next goes down) at extremely fast speeds. It's basically a recipe for the perfect epileptic seizure (or, in my case, just a headache).
Now what makes this game more than just an okay shmup and one of my new favorite collection pieces is what happens between each of the five stages - glorious 16-bit space titty! I can't make out much of the story since I can't read moon language, but from what I can gather and infer, you're some hot shot space pilot who keeps getting distress calls from beautiful space babes. When you go save them, they take off all their clothes to reward you. My screenshots don't reflect it (because I don't want the mods coming after my head), but you do get legitimate space titty complete with space nipple.
TITTY ALL DAY EVERY DAY
While the gameplay may be just okay, there is some REALLY impressive parallax scrolling in the game. I'm talking four or five different levels of scroll speeds. It's seriously cool, and it looks fantastic. I have noticed that this game is EXTREMELY hard to find online, and the few listings I saw on eBay are really pricey (hence why IDGAF that I'm fairly certain this copy is a repro), so I'd recommend emulating or Everdriving it, but I DEFINITELY recommending doing one of those two. Just make sure any parents/children/spouses aren't around.
