I have mixed feelings about this...
On the one hand, it's a new (2012-ish, so now technically retro in and of itself) remake of what may be the best game on the ZX Spectrum, with a set of graphics taken directly from the Speccy version and recoloured.

On the other hand, they've created an intro 'story' using weird Photoshop filters on generic photos and terrible 3D rendered graphics, with text set in Comic Sans, as well as presenting a version of the game with a full graphical remix using bland, lifeless 3D rendered graphics that just emphasise the copy-and-paste enemies.

The music sounds great, though...

For anyone curious to give it a try, it supposedly allows up to six players, and can be downloaded here:

Just wondering whether the Engrish used in the back story is tongue in cheek!

Difficult to say - the team behind it appear to be Belgian, going by the website's domain, so it could just be English-as-a-second-language. It kind of reads that way but, coupled with the use of Comic Sans, it could be 100% intentional.
