I didnt think it was too bad a game, it was a bit slow for a shooting/platform game and the scrolling was dire, but the music (for an st) wasnt bad.

Exolon was a great game on the Spectrum, but on the ST it doesn't do it for me. If extra features had been added it'd have been better.

One of my favourite side scrolling shoot em ups/platform games. I think I first played it on a PC in 1986 or early 1987 just a couple of weeks before I bought my first ST. On the ST except from the graphics that IIRC had better graphics, the sound was good for the time. I LOOOOOOVVEEEEED the music. It has one of the best IMO music tracks in any game till today. A good game though hard, though fair! I miss those years :-(

A true classics! Initally developed for the 8-Bit computers by our beloved Hewson company (Yup, those guys who made cybernoid and nebulus). The ST version was very well workshipped, with great sound and a hard - but fair gameplay. There was just one major flaw: No scrolling.

A great platform-shooter, spent many hours working through the levels. anyone remember the exoskeleton - gives you an extra life and double barrel gun!

Yeah! I remember the teleporters and the funny walk-anim of the spaceman
