Nebula Figther is a little-known shoot-em-up in the style of R-Type, Gradius, and other horizontal shooters. Story? Who needs it? Blast everything in your path and do so without getting shot too many times yourself ... that's all the story you need! I think there may be a story but whatever, it's all about the shooting action, which looks great with detailed graphics and fast, frantic action. You collect powerups which gradually upgrade your ship. You also have a life bar which is a welcome addition so that you don't blow up every time you're hit. Some of the enemy projectiles are difficult to see, so perhaps that's why you've given a bit more leeway. The shareware version includes 5 levels, each of them decently long. There is also a simultaneous two-player mode which is always a great feature.
