DESCRIPTION

[CONSOLE] Nintendo Famicom Cart.

Cosmic Epsilon © 1989 Asmik


Cosmic Epsilon is a forward/3-D shooter developed by Home Data and published by Asmik. An army of alien invaders from the Epsilon Empire is headed towards Earth and threatens to destroy it. An enemy transport battleship has already landed and waves of alien ships pour out of it. The player takes control of a transformable humanoid robot, the Cosmic Epsilon, and the object of the game is to fly through eight levels, from the surface of the Earth to deep into space and enemy occupied territory. The player comes equipped with two different weapons - a standard Vulcan beam (which can also be charged up by holding the fire button) and a set of limited homing missiles. Cosmic Epsilon doesn't feature any power ups, however power capsules can be collected throughout the game (extra missiles, lives or temporary shield) and are carried around by snake-like enemies (usually hidden within the scenery). Although the mech has the ability to transform into a space-fighter, this option is not directly available to the player and the game alternates between robot and spaceship levels (which both feature a similar gameplay). Finally, the game is compatible with the Famicom 3-D/stereo glasses and the 3D mode can be activated at anytime by pressing Select.
