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 MS-DOS (PC) version is running only on EGA graphics mode, and looks colorful with nicely animated sprites. Note that background coloring is missing here (much like the Acorn Archimedes version) in contrast to the Amiga and Atari ST versions.
Soundwise, it features a nice main menu tune, as well as a few pleasing sound effects, but only via pc speaker due to its age (no AdLib or Soundblaster sound hardware available at the time).
