I picked up all 12 of these Nacks Soft games. They are essentially just sprite swaps, so either wait for a 90% sale or pick up the bundle if it’s less than $10 so you are getting the content equivalent of a decently sized full game.
The difficulty curve of this one isn’t as well-designed as Accel Magician Mimi and it’s missing the 1P vs. 2P mode. It’s space-themed though. It’s a very soft recommend – a C-range, middling game.
Pick up if under $1 or if you get all 12 games for under $10.

Mines of Volantis
3 hours disappeared; I’m not sure how. But now I need to sleep before work.
If you liked ‘Motherload’ for the zen mining; you’ll probably like this.

Ohhh this games takes me back to the time of Motherload. (the flash version, not the steam version)
I just love the ambiance and the music is very good!
Every time you go down it is the question of will I be back before my fuel runs out? Every dive is a hunt for riches that you don’t want to interrupt to get fuel, but you have to. And in time as well because else your haul will be lost forever!
Upgrading this makes it easier to get huge hauls. Content wise I think the price is a bit steep but the game is very fun to play nontheless.
Caves Of Mars
The Caves Of Mars is the new 2D action space shooter game set in the mysterious caves of the planet Mars.
Tharsis is a mountainous region on Mars where hundreds of caves have been discovered. These caves contain precious gems which are heavily guarded by enemies and alien life forms.
Navigate your spacecraft through these caves, destroy enemies and alien lifeforms and collect as many gems as possible. Collecting gems will increase your health and gain points. You will gain extra bonus points the more gems you collect and enemies you destroy.
There are 100 cave levels to complete, each one procedurally generated randomly so no two levels are ever the same. As you progress through the levels the caves will become larger, more complex and you will encounter more challenging enemies, aliens and obstacles.
You will encounter many different enemies as you progress though the caves. Some guard their position and don’t move, whilst others form waves of enemy spacecraft which will follow you. The more powerful enemies will take serval hits to destroy.
Watch out for enemy boss spacecraft. Some of the Key Cards are in the possession of enemy bosses so you will need your weapons to destroy these and collect the Key Card.
Watch out for Alien lifeforms. Some of these can move, jump or fly and throw lightning bolts.
Collect Fuel to Boost Your Health.
Collect vessels containing Weapons and Shield Power-ups. Collected power-ups are displayed in the right-hand panel. Activate / deactivate these by clicking them or selecting keys 1-8. Each power-up with change the appearance of your player spacecraft.
Key Cards and Laser Doors
Find and collect ‘Key Cards’ to unlock ‘Laser Doors’ to gain access to each section of these caves.
To help there is a map of each cave system indicating the location of each Key Card and the laser doors they unlock. Open this by clicking on the map button. The caves get larger and more complex as you progress so you will need this map.
Beware of the laser beams which you will need to negotiate your way through as they switch on and off. Each laser beam will turn off and on as you approach it. To return you need to navigate the sequence of laser beams before returning.
Navigate Your Way Through Moving Platforms.
Your spacecraft will automatically descend downwards until it hits the ground or an obstacle. Control your spacecraft using arrow keys or WASD keys. Fire using either Spacebar or Mouse Click.

In B.I.O.T.A., take control of a commando unit sent to investigate a mining colony that ceased all communication. Survive in 10 completely different environments packed with mutant monsters and deadly traps with the help of a multitude of guns and various crafts, including a mech, a sub and a starship.
It’s year 21XX. You command the Gemini 2 team - a commando unit made up of tough war veterans commissioned by the V-corp, a mega mining corporation. Your task: shed light on strange events that are happening on Frontier Horizon - a small isolated asteroid squeezed in between Mars and Jupiter, and housing a mining station owned by the V-corp.
A new biological organism recently found on the surface of the asteroid, known as “the agent” is able to interact with every element of an ecosystem and change it at its will, taking full control of the organisms. Most of the mineworkers have mutated into horrible monsters, and the scientific team who made this discovery has taken refuge in the tunnels below Frontier Horizon.
Take control of the Gemini II squad by choosing your favourite hero from 8+ and swapping them as needed during this adventure. Explore the sprawling Gemini complex, now home to hostile alien life forms, a multitude of trap-filled corridors, and use all the tools at your disposal - including a bipedal fully-armed mech, offensive submarine and a starfighter class spaceship, among others.
