* Joystick Control

Plus...

With so much extra space on the CD, I have included many of my earlier CoCo releases such as Cosmic Ambush, Gate Crasher, Neutroid 2015, Pac-man, Rupert Rythym and Space Intruders along with instructions.

EMULATOR SUPPORT
Gunstar will also work with the MAME and VCC emulators.

DON'T HAVE A 6309 INSTALLED?
Gunstar makes use of the extra speed available with this CPU. Many have upgraded the standard 6809 to the improved 6309 and are able to run software which utilizes this CPU for a 10%-30% speed increase for software designed to use it such as John Kowalski's Donkey Kong transcodes & MOD music player, L. Curtis Boyle's many 6309 game optimizations, the NitrOS-9 Operating System... with more software to come.

DON'T HAVE A CD DRIVE?
Some modern computers now do not have a CD-ROM drive. If you have purchased the Physical CD Media, I can e-mail you the files found on the CD.

IS IT AVAILABLE ON 5.25" FLOPPY DISK?
Unfortunately no.

NOT INTERESTED IN GAMES?
Not everyone is into games but consider supporting my hard work by purchasing the $10US package as a donation and show of support. It will give me the encouragement to continue developing products for the CoCo in the future.
