Nebula Fighter was included as part of this collection in North America.
The presentation brings to mind Project X and T-Zer0
Gameplay is surprisingly much smoother than most euro shooters
It is a rather easy game to go through though on normal mode
Bosses are mildly interesting
The rendered graphics still look good today
Time to deal with the last boss
Review- Developed by Italian coders at Holodream, Nebula Fighter is an obscure 2D side-scrolling shooter with glorious pre-rendered sprites and backgrounds, a heavy metal score with a tendency to go on an endless loop, and Japanese-style gameplay.
As a euro-shmup, this one must be one of the most unjustly underrated games, which may have something to do with its patchy distribution: in Europe, it was apparently released in super limited quantities by Midas Interactive Entertainment, while in North America, it saw the light as part of a compilation distributed by e-dreams (which is this one scanned on the left).
It may be worth mentioning that I couldn't get this game to work on Win7 x64, so I had to install it on Win XP SP3 where the installation process proved to be fast and painless.
Nebula Fighter proved to be a really welcome surprise in terms of graphics and more importantly gameplay.
One aspect I liked is that you can actually collect weapons from defeated bosses if you are fast enough.
Bottom line: All in all, with only 6 stages to go through, it won't be long before you see the end of Nebula Fighter, but what is there is certainly excellent! 7,5/10
