Zaku

Zaku' is a side-scrolling shoot 'em up featuring one of the cutest heroes seen on the Lynx... Zaku! Plus a couple of mischievous penguins, who are up to no good... and their robotic hordes! Can you control Zaku through the skies across several diverse levels and defeat this penguin scourge once and for all? 'Zaku' is a game that appears to nod its head at some classic, well-known games. Fans of the Turbografx title 'Air Zonk', for example, will feel very much at home with 'Zaku', and the individual personalities of bosses (plus the free selection of different stages) hearkens back to the Super Nintendo 'Mega Man X' series. Whether these earlier titles had any influence on 'Zaku' is anyone's guess, but one thing is for sure: 'Zaku' is it's own wonderful, entertaining little game with style and character in absolute spades. I would happily sit 'Zaku' alongside 'Air Zonk' and 'Megaman X' in the quality stakes. It really is that good
