Quasarius - The Amiga gets a very Arcade like shoot em up!

Well this took us completely by surprise as usually we keep an eye on games in development, but thanks to a heads up by Per-Ola Erikisson we've just learnt of the release of Raliza Software's Amiga shoot em up ' Quasarius ', which was actually developed by Rafael Lima, music by Akira^G*P and with help of the EAB forums. In regards to the gameplay,  this game is very similar to games such as Galaga in which you need to destroy enemy waves, although  your ship can move in many directions and take on BIG bosses!

According to Rafael who created the game, Quasarius was completed about 5 months ago and developed using Blitz Basic and of course Amiga hardware in about 3 weeks. Although the downside is the game doesn't work with Kickstart 1.3, even if the creation of this game is a childhood dream come true. As for the future, he would love to do a proper scrolling beat em up, although that depends on who pays the bills ;)
