The Story

It is the year 2197. An alien planet, Zarjon has spiraled out of control and is heading towards planet Earth. We have sent in a few pilots and scientists to find out what has caused this planet to fly so quickly towards our planet. It turns out that a crystal stored in the bottom of the mines appears to be the source. Our people tried to remove the crystal in order to stop the planet but they got destroyed by the alien forces.

The Game

This is where you come in. Your mission is to enter the alien planet Zarjon. Fly through the 4 underground lairs and do battle against the aliens. You must ten located the crystal and destroy it in order to save Earth.

Your ship is charged with a limited number of shields. These will be lost if you collide into any aliens, their lasers or any other obstacles you come across. Once all of your shields are out our hope will be lost and Earth will be destroyed. You will be awarded an extra shield for every level completed also 1,000 points will be awarded as a bonus for you.

Can you find the power crystal and destroy it or will life on Earth be no more? The fate of Earth lies in your hands.

Good luck Pilot.

The game promises to be great, and I can't wait until he shows the full game at this year's Retro event and that this year nothing will stop such a good event

Thank you. I'm sure you won't be disappointed. It took me about 3 months to develop and put together

This looks Great, Can't wait to play it:)

Hopefully some time in the summer you'll get to play it. I have currently reserved it for Reset Magazine Issue 14's Mix-I-Disk. The deadline for submissions is near to the end of June 2021, but the game won't be released on this page until after the mag is released - All of which is for free to download. It has been quite a lot of fun making this game in co-op with good buddy Hugues, who stepped in to do the graphics.


Definetly your work will become another great shootem up classic for Commodore 64. One question just for curiosity do you programm for Atari 8 bits too ? We love Commodore 64 but we have realized that Atari 800 xl / 65 xe has great works too. You could expand your legacy in video games. It´s just only a question, suggestion and idea. Thanks in advance for this game. Take care.

Thank you.

The only 8-bit computer I programmed on in my lifetime was the Commodore 64.
