Alien Attack - A fully loaded, all-in, Zanac-like vertical shooter for the MSX

It's crazy how many Shoot 'em ups we feature on Indie Retro News, I know for sure the C64 and ZX Spectrum has certainly had its fair share of homebrew blasters on our website. Well now it's time for the MSX to get in on the fun. As we've recently been told through Facebook, that you can now download a rather cool looking Shoot 'em up called 'Alien Attack'. A game that the MSXDev competition has said is "A fully loaded, all-in, Zanac-like vertical shooter that blows you out of your socks and rips your pants off, if you’re not careful".

The description of the game is as follows "Playing Alien Attack, you control the combat fighter craft called V.I.P.E.R. to blast your way through waves of relentless foes. The game is a top-down shooter that scrolls with various speeds. Unlike with Zanac, perilous ground-based obstacles are to taken caution of as well. Kill or be killed, collect power ups, and destroy the end-bosses, while shouting “Take that, ugly ****!”. So there you have it, a game that certainly sounds like a playthrough and even more so going by the feedback which is very positive thus far!
