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. 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. Along your way there are several nasties flying or jumping around (mainly bouncing balls) and, when contacting them will throw you instantly at a lower ground or directly to the sea. Also note, there are a few platforms that do not handle your...weight, so easily fall all the way down. Ok, although gameplay is quite interesting, we deal here with one of the most difficult games to-play! I think that, the 3 lives given are way too short...
The C64 version is colorful with nicely animated sprites much like the CPC platform. The action here is a bit faster compared to the CPC and ZX versions. Background detail is limited to single color but the tower itself is very well detailed.
As far as the sound, the game features an excellent intro music, but the in-game sound is limited to a few catchy sound effects (better quality than the CPC here).
