When it will give the game the green light? I would have bought the game in the collection
Когда уже дадут игре зелёный свет? Я бы приобрёл игру в коллекцию

На ZX-Spectrum, Commodore, Amiga, было множество прекрасных игр. Там была плохая графика, но хороший смысл. Вот на что нужно делать ремейки. ))

Absolute Blue я однозначно скачаю, как память о стареньких шедеврах.

Absolute Blue I definitely will download as a memory of old masterpieces.

Thanks. Stats are looking quite okay to me so far, so I hope that AB will make it to Steam sooner or later.

No thank you and Reflexive for a great time. Reflexive used to be my prime playground of mini games, it was basically the start of indie games as we know today.

Thanks on the offer, but I will buy it just to have it in library one day. If I cant, I will send a message! Good luck with Greenlight, tho I am seeing AB has only 2 star rating in votes on my Greenight collection, so it will be a tough way, really sad people are ignoring this one. :(

Thank you so much for the nice words. Still feels awesome to hear such stories of people who really enjoyed the game back then. Send me a message when I got greenlit and I will provide a free key to you.

Oh good God. I played this game when it was published by now defunct Reflexive Arcade in 2007 I think.

I liked it A LOT. Sweet memories, I wont buy it again, but I can never vote no to this one. Kinda surprised noone else knows about this game here.

@SupaDope® stop doing that, small devs just accept their friend requests because they think it's someone who likes their games. Idiot.

A callback to the classics. Quite interesting mechanics as well!

I'm also a big R-Type fan myself (played it on Sega Master System, never had a Spectrum)
