Nebulus is a platform game with some distinctive unique features. Your character, a small green creature called Pogo, is on a mission to destroy eight towers that have been built onto the sea.
The actual game play happens at each tower in turn (giving a 3D feeling although the game is a classic 2D action platform!). Pogo starts from the bottom and has to find his way up to the top. The towers are cylinder-shaped and have ledges on their outside, either horizontal, forming stairs or connected by elevators. Gameplay is quite interesting, even if we had to cope with one of the most difficult games to-play ever created, (and yes, sometimes the gameplay gets frustrating). Although its difficulty, Nebulus offers great fun with its unique story and gameplay.
The Atari ST version (much like the Amiga version) is colorful with nicely animated sprites. The game features nice colors at the background which apparently is missing on the Acorn Archimedes and PC (running in EGA graphics) versions!
Low quality SFX and no in-game music are on the negative side here. The introductory tune is good (and memorable I think) but the sound effects are minimal whilst there is no music during gameplay.
