Orion Prime is again available in its original french package, but also in english and spanish package. If you have to offer a gift to a geek, what about Orion Prime and a sdcard HxC floppy emulator (few left for pre-ordering, maybe at this time no more, be quick...) ?

You will be able to order Orion Prime till the 30th April (payment by check or paypal). All orders will be sent by the 25th May, then the 30th june 2010, all versions will be available as a download.

Sadly there will be no german version of the package, and a german download isnt even sure, I dont know the reasons though.

After Star Sabre, Dead on Time by Axelay for Amstrad CPC

-

Axelay is the author of Star Sabre and Star Sabre 128 (a shoot them up). His new creation is Dead on Time, an arena shooter, where you have to last the longer possible vs waves after waves going for you. It reminds me of Time Pilot by Konami.
