Description: Uridium meets Xevious in this fast-paced retro shooter. Only 20 minutes remain before nuclear Armageddon, and it is up to you and your acrobatic silver space craft to save the day! Akasa steps back in time by rendering 3d objects in a limited palette of bright colours to reproduce the 'feel' of 80's C64 classics such as Impossible Mission, Uridium and Paradroid. And of course, in the best tradition of C64 gaming, the game- play itself is what Akasa is all about. But be warned, Akasa is no push-over! Just like the arcade games of the past, Akasa bountifully rewards persistence and skill but is quickly dismissive of the half-interested, casual attempt. Akasa thus sounds out a challenge to best of the old school gamers. Setting: The game setting of Akasa is at the concluding phase of a long war between the evil robotic empire of Samsara and the republic of humanity. The Samsaran empire is doomed. Their final act of defiance is to attempt to unravel the very fabric of the universe. 15 nuclear warheads have been placed at critical junctures within the space-time continuum. In just 20 minutes, these warheads will be detonated, causing all as we know it to vanish. The player's task is to prevent this detonation by destroying each warhead before it can be armed. Gameplay primarily occurs in the upper levels of the atmosphere of the home planet of Samsara. The game features -15 colourful levels of fast-paced mayhem -Real-time mult-source lighting and shadowing effects -Many game secrets, including powerups and secret levels -Two completely different "winning" gameplay strategies
