The year is 2051. Location: SATAZIUS, a long-abandoned planet.
The cruiser Agano was on patrol when it was attacked and stricken by a confederacy of space pirates that had established a base on SATAZIUS. The pirates attacked the Agano intending to steal the assault ship ‘Trafalgar’ that was stowed aboard the Agano, but the Trafalgar made a successful emergency escape.
The crew of the Trafalgar calculated the probability of successfully escaping the pirate overrun planet at 0.02%; the probability of charging into and successfully destroying the pirate base was 1%. Taking the higher probability escape plan, the crew of the Trafalgar turned their ship toward the pirate horde and began their charge into the heart of SATAZIUS.
SATAZIUS is an awesome old school side-scrolling arcade shooter by accomplished indie developer ASTRO PORT (Gigantic Army, Armed Seven, Supercharged Robot Vulkaiser), featuring an arsenal of 13 types of upgradeable weapons, power-ups, obstacles and boss encounters that arcade veterans will enjoying getting to grips with.

Satazius is a game of scrolling shooter, like the games of before the times of the NES, this game does not have any history as far as I have been able to observe and if it has it must be well hidden. Has 4 levels of difficulty and only 2 are available from the beginning and the remaining 2 will be unlocked as we play. The most outstanding of the game are the variety of weapons that we can have and that we can change them according to the circumstances. This game is the typical game in which we must defend ourselves from different waves of enemy until the boss appears and we defeat him to pass to the following level. The game is very entertaining and fun with which you can spend hours of fun.
