Warhawk - Rusty Pixels is overhauling an 80's blaster for the ZX Spectrum Next

Way back in 1986 Firebird Software released the scrolling shoot em up game ' Warhawk ' for the Atari 8-bit, Atari ST, Amstrad and the C64. The gameplay involved lots of top down scrolling action as the player had to deal with lots of obstacles before the ultimate wave of enemy ships attacked the player at the end of each level. So if you remember this game you'll be pleased to know Rusty Pixels and Flashbang Studio have not only released an overhauled demo for the ZX Spectrum next, but a full version is in the works.

Featuring a stunning remix of Rob Hubbard's classic tune and overhauled graphics with a ZX Spectrum designed UI on the right hand side, the Warhawk demo gives us an early glimpse of the game with two levels of the 20 or more levels found in the full version when it's released. So if you want to give the demo a go it is available to try out via the Next SD card package in the games folder.
