About This Game

Platypus is a fast, frantic and fun arcade-style shoot-em-up!!

The vast continent-spanning city of Collosatropolis has finally reached the limits of its expansion. Tall buildings cover every available space. The air is thick with smoke and poisonous chemicals. Parking is a nightmare.

The Collosotropolan leaders have decided the simplest solution is to invade the neighbouring country of Mungola. They don't anticipate much of a struggle - Mungolans are simple, earthy types without much love for industry. In fact, Mungola's entire defence force consists of a single squadron of fighter planes - the venerable F-27 "Platypus".

What possible threat could a few antique aircraft be to the mighty Collosotropolan Battle Fleet...?

To the Mungolan people the venerable F-27 "Platypus" is their last best hope for freedom!

I used to play the demo for this when I was a child, never thought I'd see it on Steam. It's a little harder than I remember, still good.

I'm really good at reviews...
