At one time Nebulus broke out a real hit. In the game, the green Pogo character must destroy 8 towers built in the sea. In Nebulus a unique novelty is used. In fact, Pogo is always in the central part of the screen, and the towers (cylindrical shape) rotate. Very innovative 3D effect.
The game Nebulus, also known as Castelian (NES, GB), Kyorochan Land (Famicom) and Tower Toppler (USA) is a computer game published by Hewson in the late 80's for Commodore 64 computers and then ZX Spectrum, Amstrad CPC, Amiga, Atari ST, IBM PC (DOS) and Acorn Archimedes (the version for Atari XE / XL was not finished). Also came out versions for consoles - Game Boy, NES and Atari 7800, and nowadays Nebulus can be found on Wii Virtual Console or Symbian.
In the poisonous sea on the distant planet Nebulus, far beyond the horizon, there are eight mysterious rotating towers. They serve as power plants for the crazy projects of a mad scientist dreaming to rule the universe. It is necessary to stop it, flooding the towers in the sea!
You are the best expert of Destructo, Inc. After the boss calls to him on the carpet, calls a tidy sum and promises to sail on the experimental submarine BA-1, you can not refuse the assignment. There is only one small problem. To flood the towers, we must scramble to their very top. And each of them is protected by giant mutated molecules, huge flying eyes, evil robots and powerful cannons. But you do not miss. Put on your frog suit, take the freezing cannon and go, the submarine is waiting! Sailing on a submarine, you can frolic, shooting at the fish.
