Zaku for Lynx... any word?
« on: April 10, 2012, 16:57:36 PM »
Hey guys, I was REALLY tempted to get this recently but they appear to still be out of stock, anyone bought this? And if so how was it? I loved the looks of it but I won't pay ebay prices if it comes up lol

Does anyone know if they are still working on this or not?

I never got the chance to buy this either as I was totally skint at the time. I really regret it now though.

They intially promised the game would be made as long as there was demand.

They then changed their mind and said thy would do a second run after the release of Pier Solar on the Megadrive.

We are STILL waiting  . . . . >:(

lol really? yeah man I was proper psyched when I read about this, Laird knows where I saw it, but I emailed them months ago and they were like "we will get more in stock SOON" I now understand it was a pretty loose estimate lol

I bought this game at the time of release. :)

Extremely professional product - the box, cart and manual.

Gorgeous visuals and an all-round good (not necessarily great) shmup that's definitely worth owning for any Lynx owner keen on shmups.

Yes Emulator or nothing, most emulators have a record function built in.

If you go to this thread here you can ask the publishers some questions!

got my copy and my new adapter yesterday! the damn adapter that I had broke, its 3rd pin snapped as its made of cheap plastic lol...

so I played some Zaku quickly and so far it looks really nice I'm just not sure on how to play it 100% yet, it seems pretty hard so far, I think I got to the first boss

The other thing I noticed was the intro music was rather dodgy... but other than that it seems pretty good so far
