Hmm... Well, the only trace left on the web is the very old page at


which is about the original DOS version. Note that you probably have to 
apply that Borland Pascal 7.0 RTL patch to run it on anything faster than 
some 200 MHz. (I don't think the binary is patched.)

(Note that most modern video cards don't handle the original VGA hardware 
scrolling feature too well. On a *real* VGA card, the game scrolls at a 
rock solid, perfectly smooth 60 Hz.)

In short, it's a sideways scrolling shooter inspired by Project-X, 
Armalyte, Salamander and that kind of games. (I'm probably going to make 
the gameplay of the new version more aggressive, in a Doom kind of way... 
Bumping against walls, health points, some "immediate impact" weapons
