Take it from me folks, it really is that easy to be a big shot game designer!
Parasol Stars is a very cute and very colourful platform game that follows on from Bubble Bobble and Rainbow Islands. While it’s not as well known as those two, since it was developed for the PC Engine, it really is worth a go.
A C64 version was planned but the programmer’s wife got mad one night and destroyed the development disks. GAH! Source control, learn to love it 🙂
