[CONSOLE] NEC PC-Engine Game

Download © 1990 NEC Avenue, Limited.


Download is an horizontal shooter by Nec Avenue. The game takes place in 2099 in the city of Kabukicho (Japan). The story begins when the cyber-diver and special agent Syd gets awaken by a special message from his friend Deva. She explains that something bad is going on with the case they are both investigating. Case which already took the life of their cyber-diver friend Ohala. She is now held prisioner by the Kabukicho police and Syd decides to ride his flying bike and to rush to her rescue. Interestingly, Download offers a complex and unusual gameplay - Syd can "jack-in" and various stages actually happen inside a computer network. Two upgradable main weapons are available - a Beam Vulcan (which can fire in five directions when fully loaded) and a Laser Cannon. Secondary weapons can also be equipped, from the Chaser homing missiles or the Crusher. The game is vast and a password system is available to save the game's progress.
