"Hard childhood, 8-bit toys!" Plunge into the Times of 8bit (well, of course I will be pro ZX Spectrum as a fan), well, or remember the programming on Basic. For the desktop, that's it! By "dashing" 90-th, with love!

Super! As said by others it reminds a bit of Defender but adds an avalanche of other items and has two game modes, Arcade and Campaign. The Last is really interesting and varied, much more than I expected. Also Recommended for non-nostalgic!

Its difficulty and gameplay make it very entertaining and satisfying; In the countryside there are many levels, all different with many unique enemies. The arcade mode perfectly represents the style of the game. The Graphics does go this game on any PC; The textures and sprites are well made and beautiful to see. I am surprised that it is free, it would be worth a lot compared to many titles with higher budgets. In any case I recommend to anyone to play it and try something different from the usual.

I liked the game very much, remembered for some reason the recent VVVVV, and immediately became fun:) Reasons why she liked me personally: 1) Very good graphics for the retro game. The similar did, not very difficult, but looks K R a S And B O 2) Pleasant and simple gameplay. You Just have to shoot at the enemy from the helicopter and depending on the level, to understand any mission. 3) Simple operation. Yes, a lot of keys related to ammunition, but after a while this problem leave itself. 6 keys to control and 6 (if not mistaken) for shooting-not much for a retro shooter. 4) 8-bit atmosphere-here and sounds, and graphics. Mmmm! Highly recommended.

Golden Hornet is a retro game where you are the pilot of a helicopter and you also have control of the weapons, you will have to save hostages while fighting against war planes, other helicopters, tanks of war etc... The controls are easy, you should not take more than two minutes in Aprendertelos well. 8-bit style music goes very well with the game. The game has 3 modes, the training mode is like a tutorial, the campaign where there are 8 episodes each brings 3 levels, the last mode of play is the arcade where it is an infinite mission. The game asks very few requirements and is free to play, certainly a very entertaining game to hang Out or also when there is no internet 8/10
