Nebulus by Hewson

Synopsis: Sorry either we do not have an official synopsis for this title or one was never actually written by the game developer, this is particularly true in the case of game packages that have multiple titles in one box. If you own this game, have access to the synopsis (usually written on the back of the box) and would like to submit it to CPC Zone for inclusion on this page, please post on our forums.

A beautiful concept very nicely executed -another Hewson gem. Very nice presentation and pretty and very functional graphics/scrolling. A very nice gaming experience!

Personal rating : 8/10

You wont find many games similar to this - Hewson were experts at developing original & unique games that oozed playability with cool graphics, colourful sprites & catchy tunes Nebulus is a fantastic concept that also turned out to be a great game to play... I think the ending is bugged though.

Personal rating : 7/10
