Retro Feature: Space Station Pheta
Posted by Ryan on 3 July 2012, 20:40 GMT

Space Station PhetaAwhile back, Paul Bellar brought Spacestation Pheta to our 83/84 Plus calcs without a lot of fanfare. A side-view platformer at heart, your ultimate goal is to get yourself to the airlock before your oxygen (which may be refilled with powerups) expires. Not only is the game quite well-ported and, in some ways, more atmospheric than the original, but the animation and sensitivity are spot-on and high in fidelity. Space Station Pheta is a prime example of the potential for amusing, enjoyable animations and gameplay with an air of simplicity and elegance. With a level-editor included, it would be a miscarriage of justice to pass up this chance to run, jump, and dance your days away in space.

I remember seeing this when I didn't own yet a z80 calc. It looked pretty nice then. I haven't played it yet, but based on the screenshots, I would say it deserves this feature. :)
