This remake of Zektor, is my first (of three) games remade for the Retro Remakes Competition 2008.
The original arcade game was made in 1982/1983 by Gremlin.

Download for Windows XP and above.
Download for Mac OSX (Intel).

MAC OSX note:
Please be aware, that the games I’ve ported to OSX doesn’t run on newer OS’s. I bought my MacBook Pro in 2011 and have never updated it, so I can assure you that the games still work. BUT Apple has removed “Legacy support” from their operating systems, and since the language I’ve used hasn’t been updated to support newer OSX versions, the games won’t run on on newer and updated machines.

You control a spaceship and your mission is to liberate nine cities which have been conquered by evil aliens. Fight off three attack waves of defending enemy ships and moboids and fire through rotating rings at the alien to gain extra ships.

The original game has 8 levels (cities) but this remake has 9 levels.
When (if) you reach level 9 it will repeat indefinitely once you beat it, but it will take lots of skill.
For information on the original game, go to “Killer List Of Videogames” (KLOV)

Here’s three screenshots from the remake (pictures reduced – click to enlarge).
This first picture is from the menu.



The game has fullscreen wireframe scenes. This is the “Attract mode lady”…
