If you loved the C64 classic THRUST, then EXILE will be the perfect game for you, not only because it's from the same creator.
The story is something about a mad professor who's making devastating experiments and also stole an important component of your precious space craft! So you dive deep down into the planet Phoebus to get it back and make an end to the professor's mad regime.
The most important thing on your mission will be your jetpack with which you fly through the levels, always fighting against mad robots and other evil nasties that want to get you and also fighting against gravity, just like in THRUST. You not only find different weapons but also other collectable items that you may need to trade with the inhabitants of the underground world.
The gameplay is brilliant and although graphics and sound are not overwhelmingly great, EXILE is hooking from start to finish!
