"One thing I can't stand, particularly in England, is that sometimes it becomes more about fashion and irony than the actual music [...] I don't want people to like our band because we're cool; I want people to like us because they dig the music."

ORBYT

Code: T.M.R
Graphics: T.M.R
Released: 1988

The original idea for Orbyt was sort of evolved from the spinning "defense" weapons from games like Delta, except that I wanted to make it the primary weapon.

What you can download and play here is a very early preview of the game, the source is based on HyperZap and modified to run sideways. This preview was from the very first stages of development and therefore lacks a lot of the niceties, like raster timing, backgrounds and sound.
