Fantastic game! I purchased it on desaru. The gun mechanics are similar to the metal slug games, but the gameplay is super metroid all the way. A lot of game for a $1.99.

The developer, Starflower Games, aren't able to actually release the game due to some financial reasons, I think. I don't know the exact details, but if you check the discussions titled "Where is the steam version?", the Steam representative Gekko actually says they are "not active at the moment". So it seems like until all that is settled, none of their games are eligible to be released or updated...Starflower Games might be a dead company, sadly.

It might take time to do all the adjustments, as not all greenlight to steam processes are quick.

You can still buy it on GamersGate and other websites if you really wanted to do so. This game is actually years old. It's not under active development or anything like that.

Sad to see that they're not planning to release it after getting greenlit...

looks kinda cool... And also like a slower Super Metroid, I´d like to try it.
