The opening to the first level has the character flying down to the ground in a ship. I got reminded of it with the descending to martian service intro. Since Halloween Harry was an influence I just wanted to check about this other game from the same era 😄
Getting shot down at the beginning has to be inspired by Contra Hard Corps.

For the ones that have bought the game, Do you recommend it? it will be my first hombrew ^^

We've had very few reviews, and they range from 6/10 to 10/10 so far.
In short, people generally say the music is +, and graphics are -, which is something you can easily appreciate yourself in the various videos posted :)

The divisive bit is the difficulty, and the how the gameplay actually needs to get familiar with, on pain of repeated, humiliating deaths :keke:

We tried to make it so it plays like an arcade game of the early 1990s, for good and bad; not like a modern game on an old system... One player was very angry that you couldn't credit feed the game to the end (as spending a credit respawns you at the beginning of a level). Another one said it was too easy for "serious players". So honestly, it's really down to what you're expecting. If you're not sure, you can try out the PC version, it's the cheapest of the bunch; it will even be up on Steam on May 6th with 15% off.

Thanks :beer:

Game difficulty in 2024 in a nutshell. Most are too lazy to "git gud" and the few who actually play games are busy shaming everyone else.

that's the kind of brainlet that claims all arcade games are coin munchers and the same thing as modern microtransactions

Hey there! :)
No, there's no unibios cheat. The more lives you can get from the options is 5 / credit; as you respawn at the beginning of a level when you take a credit the only real way to cheat the game is to credit feed and alternate 1p & 2p ;)

Have fun 🤟

Ey @Johnny16Bit thanks for the tip!

the problem is that im not respawning at the begining of the level, the game auto restarts, i dont have even the chance to use any credit to restart at the begining of the level, see the video attached:


Regards!

Hey there

Looks like a softdip option (continue = no) or more likely a dipswitch / unibios interaction thing. Check your hard dips and see if #7 is on - and if so, switch it to off.

Can we buy a rom that is known to work on the dark soft cart ?

Yes, the "neo rom" bundle for download actually contains the rom under plenty of different formats (analogue pocket, neoSD, MVSX/ASP, Mame, MiSTer and DarkSoft).
"Full" bundle adds PC win, Dreamcast and PSP.
Thanks :cheers:


EDIT: oh, our friend Charles just shared an ungoobing video
