Apidya - Amiga Version ( (c)Kaiko )

Apidya - War At Meadow´s Edge

Apidya is one of the greatest 2d shoot `em ups of all times.
It is original, fair and plays very well.
Beside the normal weapons and speedups you also have a R-Type-alike megashot and you can have drones (since your a Honeybee that´s quite suitable ;). Enemies and levels vary a lot and there are several smaller bosses and secrets. But believe me, if you encounter a end-of-level Boss, you´ll recognize him.
Or did you ever battle a three screen wide Fish before ?

Believe me - it will take you to your limits.

Graphics and sound are more then excellent - so what may somebody expect more ?

(site might load a bit, sorry for the size...)
