Cruiser-X 79 v2022.12.24 (Full Release) (Commodore 64 – C64) (Game)

Cruiser-X 79 by Richard of TND is a fast-paced vertical scrolling shoot ’em up game, inspired by many top-down 8-bit vertical scrolling classics.

In this game, your mission is to help guide your Cruiser-X 79 escape from being captured and destroyed by the aliens. You need to reach safely to your headquarters base and send out a distress signal to the Interspace Legion. You will fly through 16 levels of alien territory, and fight the aliens. These aliens will fight back by dropping lasers downwards. Be very careful not to bump into the aliens or tall structures on each base. It will cost you destruction. During your fight, there’s cargo which you can steal that will help you slightly through your battle. The cargo awards you different power ups. These are as follows:

Smart bomb: You can only carry three of those, the bomb icon will appear on screen.

Master blaster: Powers up your fire power.

Shield: Gives you protection against aliens for a temporary time.

Extra Lives: They are awarded on level completion.​
