Have you ever felt the need of a real Shooter, that one who doesn't need a world to be saved? Or feel that squashing turtles isn't your style? indeed my friend, the day has come, and the game's name is Metarx. 25 Levels of pure action, hundreds of enemies, and nothing else to do besides kill 'em all and kick the stage boss's butt. believe me, you won't need anything else before Metarx.

Avaliable on Nintendo Entertainment System and Comodore 64.

Note from Metaru: You know, when a bad game needed a cool name, they just added an 'X' to it

Love the icon.

please, check the description of the game again :P when i submitted it i couldn't write anything except the title (my keyboard was disconnected and i was on a hurry v,vU)

 yeah... i felt the same... but you know, the 'bullets' are inspired in contra's ones. specifically the 'shotgun' weapon.

you know, Metarx is just one of those crappy copies of something else that flooded the NES systems in the 80's. rather than just a simple mockup, this is a parody xD

i agree with jalonso, the preview is the balls.

The icon is ace!!! The only real crit is the color of the fire balls which get lost in the bricks. Well that the sprite is less detailed than the BG could be consisered lame...
