Captain Kaon is a retro twin-stick gravity shooter inspired by 1980s classics such as Thrust and Gravitar. Captain Kaon brings the vector graphics of old right 'up-to-date' with vibrant Amiga-style pixel art and a tight twin-stick control mechanic.
The overcrowded Earth has found a new home among the stars, a clutch of habitable worlds in the Regulus sector. But this new paradise did not last long as a strange alien force began a relentless assault on their colonies. This threat to human expansion could not go unchallenged.
In response the Earth has sent the finest ships in the Interstellar Navy to defend the colonists and protect its interests. Left behind are the old and the out of date, led by the flagship Argus. A small fleet of relics to defend our only home.
Hot headed and insubordinate, Captain Talia 'Kaon' was facing a court martial when war broken out. Hoping this new conflict would give her the chance for salvation, she instead found herself left behind. With the Argus operating on a skeleton crew, she has been assigned as its sole gunship pilot.
In the midst of this uncertainty the miners of Ceres revolt against Earth rule, refusing to supply the fleet with the deuterium fuel it sorely needs. Without it the fleet in Regulus will be unable to fight and the Earth will become vulnerable. Only Captain Kaon can fly her gunship through the twisting tunnels beneath Ceres surface and fight the revolt.

The only point of the game's reliance can be the gameplay, which its logic is easy. move with a number of keys, dodge left and right, aim and shoot with the mouse. Sometimes land on the specific areas to fill the ammo and the health of your spaceship. But what can be the winner card of this simple gameplay? Easy and smooth controls, plus an acceptable level design. The game fails in both of these disciplines, and even can not approach to the ideals of this style. Captain Koan does not spoil the child's memories. The truth is that it's not at all in capable of that. The headache music, which is sometimes funny with the sci-fi effects of the 1980s, is alongside the tedious stage design, tedious control, and a linear gameplay are only few negative aspects of the game that prevent it from reaching its full potential. Although its experience for a few hours can be a reminder of the child's memories, and the experience of it again can be a change apart from nowadays great colorful games!
Captain Kaon is a retro styled shooter set in space. The game is fast and colorful like most of the game styled at the older times. The gameplay is based on twin stick, one moves while another aim, it is very simple but also can be satisfying when you get the hang of it. The downside is the music which is quite repetitive not to mention fps locked at 30 which makes every PCMR member very sad.
Captain Kaon is a twin stick gravity shooter with gameplay and visual style likely inspired by old arcade and PC titles. You have some control of your missions and the ship that you are flying, once a mission starts you move your ship around by activating thrust with W and turning the ship with A and D, if you do not have your thrust activated the ship will start to fall. You will fight your way through cavern like areas with the help of a gunner that you can have aim and shoot around your ship, you can make use of some different weapons like missiles and bombs, and your ship has a winch that can be used to pick up and move objects around, such as power cells needed to open up parts of the map. If you enjoyed games that control like this and have some nostalgia for older games that it takes its art style and some mechanics from then you can probably find something to like here for a low price.
