Uchūsen Gamma - Juan J. Martínez upcoming Shoot em up for the MSX

Juan J. Martínez has made some rather cool games lately, games such as Night Knight, The Dawn of Kernel, Rescuing Orc, Magica and Golden Tail for systems such as the Amstrad CPC, C64 and MSX. But now after a heads up in our email, he has told us he is now working on a Shoot em up called 'Uchūsen Gamma' for the MSX; a vertical shoot’em up that is due to be released this upcoming November 29th!

According to the creator the game offers classic shoot’em up action with a twist: the power ups only appear when 9 enemies are destroyed in a row (a “full chain”). The longer the chain, the more points will be obtained per destroyed enemy. There’s a risk/reward component because you may need to wait to kill the enemy ships until there are enough of them on screen to complete a full chain. The game features classic arcade action, smooth scrolling, 5 stages with multiple enemy types and a boss, keyboard or joystick control and will be PAL/NTSC compatible requiring an MSX computer with 16K of RAM

The game will be available as a free download from usebox.net and there will be a physical edition in cartridge by Repro Factory (pre-order will open early December).
