Firebat Revolution, from developer LtCoyote, has launched its full version for anyone hoping to indulge in a healthy dose of nostalgia-fueled block breaking. Armed with authentic-looking retro pixel art, the game is described as an almost one-man project that’s been lovingly inspired by the 8-bit/Amiga era of old, and honestly, it’s done a fantastic job of recreating that style – in fact, if you told me this came out in the early 1990s, I would absolutely, 100% believe you. In the game, players control a titular Firebat and navigate their Machina (the pad, basically) to bounce the Sphera (aka the ball) around in order to break a set number of bricks. Naturally, you’ll also be able to upgrade your ball as you advance through the game’s varied repertoire of levels, gradually making it easier to break bricks, fight menacing bosses and set new records. But don’t take my word for it – to see how all that looks in action, do give this trailer a peep:

Firebat Revolution is out now on, offering 94 levels and roughly 6 hours’ worth of gameplay. There’s also a demo version available, which you can download from the same site.
