The original game saw Conrad B Hart fighting an alien invasion in a side scrolling action adventure that, at the time, honestly had an unprecedented level of both visual and narrative punch. Really.
Five of the original development team were involved and the overall objective was, “to remain faithful to the spirit of the original game but to take full advantage of the power of today’s machines”. There have been a very few changes. “The story is true to the original scenario, and all the characters and their enemies from the first game are all back. It has been beefed up and modernized. Some characters that were sort of in the background in the first version were developed and have taken on more importance”.

The game’s had other tweaks to, “bring the game up to standards” say the VectorCell. “The first was obviously in the graphics department. We also gave a facelift to the gameplay by making it more reactive and dynamic, the reactivity and instinctive control of Conrad being two points that we really take to heart. We also integrated an experience progression system for the character and his equipment, with upgrades that can be found throughout the various levels”.
