    The gameplay footage does look very interesting.
    But the color use and the HUD look awful.

    Sorry I don't have a profile picture but the "Customize profile" function seems to be broken at this moment.
    Thank you Black_Tiger for posting this here, I have been trying to register in this forum for weeks without luck until today.

    About the game:
    It is not a re-skin of Mercs, I coded it from scratch in C using the famous SGDK.
    This game is a port of the MSX2 version which I also coded from scratch (Mercs doesn't exist on MSX). The MSX2 is almost identical to the Genesis/Mega-drive version, but we added more weapons and many improvements, more variety etc.

    The game is for 1 player only. We went in this direction because most retro-gamers usually play alone, so we used all the resources for 1 player.
    Right now, adding a second player would mean to remove existing elements:
    A second player requires 2 sprites plus 6 more sprites for his personal bullets. In order to do this we would have to remove the maximum amount of enemies on screen and also the amount of bullets.
    This would harm the 1 player experience and all the game should be re-balanced and re-designed.
    Considering that most people would play it alone anyway, I belive we made the right choice.

    Please feel free to ask us anything you want.
    Thanks for posting, everything looks cool and I was already following the MSX version a bit!

    With the various versions you are selling, is the only difference the outer case insert?

    Do all the cartridges have the same language versions, no different manuals, etc?

    I always have a hard time deciding on variants like this if they're not basically the same inside. I love the JP MegaDrive look but would prefer the game in English when I play it.

    Thank you for your interest ^_^
    The only difference is the cover. The manual and cartridge is the same, and it will play in English on any region and console.
