That is one hard game. Maybe I'm just getting old.

Also, quite a bit of collision checking going on there. I suspect that is what the machine code is for.

ARTRAG-san,
Thank you for your comment.

I had inspired by the famous arcade game "GRADIUS", and I created this game program.
I had made all efforts to realize its beautiful horizontal and up-down combined scrolling in this program.

So this program may seem too simple to play longer, please forgive that point.

In addition, recommended BGM is "LIFE FORCE" to play with.

Edwin-san,
Thank you for your comment.

Joypad controller may be essential for playing games like this.

About collision checking, It is set in small range intentionally in order to feel thrill and not to feel unreasonable.
Also, collision checking is set invalid till scrolling starts in the beggining of game.
