Game is pretty well done, but would not say that will challenge player for longer time.

Yes, this is very first STE game, done by Atari self. Actually, the following message at Atarimania reminded me :
"So, this would have been the first STe game!
Maybe its release would have open the path for more? We'll never know...
Thanks for sharing it!"

Yes, indeed it could open path, but somehow SW companies, game programmers did not put much effort in that direction.
I don't agree that we will never know. Actually, we know it pretty well why count of STE supporting games is so low (here could add that count of games using blitter (from 1987) is low too) .
The reasons: lazyness, doing games only because of profit, lower ST SW sales overall ... Hmm ... did I forget my favorite - lack of good documentation :D
There is 2 kind of people: one thinking about moving to Mars after here becomes too bad, the others thinking about how to keep this planet habitable.

Never played or even seen this. It looks like a weird SHMUP version of Toobin', and a lack lustre version at that. Thanks for sharing.
