Inspired by a variety of C64/Amiga and arcade classics including Vital Light, Arkanoid, Space Invaders and Tetris, Huenison is a frantic-paced hybrid of shoot 'em up and colour-matching puzzle game presented in a neo-retro, unique dot-matrix visual style. Piloting a small mobile cannon back and forth across the bottom of a well, you must cycle through your six coloured beams, firing at the descending onslaught of corresponding coloured blocks. Missed shots bring the deadly zapper closer to your cannon, and missed blocks raise the ground they touch.

With 25 levels, multiple boss battles, 9 different game modes, kick-a$$ chiptunes and a ludicrous variety of different block types, Huenison is all about racking up bonuses and score chaining. Your goal? To defeat the game and achieve top position on the online highscore table and, while at it, to save the world!

Over two and a half years in development, Huenison was designed and coded for AmigaOS 4 and Windows by Simone Bevilacqua of Retream and published by RGCD.


A cut-down, five-level trial version of the game is available for download at the Huenison website[], whereas the full DRM-free game can be currently be purchased from the RGCD online store[] priced at £2.99.


Take Arkanoid, Decathlon, Dyna Blaster, Impossible Mission, Oil's Well, Pac-Man, Pang, Qix, Slam Tilt, Space Invaders, Tetris and Vital Light, mix them up with some glowy retro visuals, throw in some decidedly C64 tunes, add a splash of classic arcade mentality and lo and behold Huenison will be born.

Huenison perfectly captures the essence of addictiveness and gradual mastery that retro games are so famous for, but it does so without pounding you over the head with it or making you feel like a failure.

Being what it is, Huenison isn't about progressing through a story or any of that nonsense; it's all about racking up high scores and surviving the onslaught of bricks.

It's chaotic, challenging and so much fun! Welcome to HUENISON!

A riot of dot matrix retro graphics, synthetic sounds from the Commodore 64 and mechanics taken from an era still magical for many retrogamers.

In short, when it comes to new ideas in the world of indie games inspired by the old glories of the past, it is not always easy to match the giants of the genre but there is a lot of innovation in Huenison.

Huenison we liked. Retromaniac Magazine

The musical theme of Huenison is very good, elevates the intensity of the game, and it sounds like it has come out of the SID chip of Commodore 64.

You need eyes of a chameleon to track everything that happens on the screen at the same time. And with the price of chameleons eyes implants nowadays, Huenison is hard game to beat...

Hello floa, sorry for the late reply, I had not noticed your post. I've been busy making another video game, which I have released just a couple of days ago (it's called MAH, and it's a sequel of Huenison, but it's for the C64 - if you're curious, have a look at its page on CSDb []). I'm still a bit busy with other things, but I'm going to look into getting Huenison on Steam ASAP. I can't make promises though.
