I used to have a demo of this game on my parents' Windows 95 and I would play it all the time as a kid. For a long time I could never get past the first boss until I discovered the usefulness of the Plasma Storm attack. After that I must have finished the demo a hundred times, by myself, with friends, pretty much went through every secret level and the arcade mode a bunch of times too. Then we got rid of that computer and I didn't see the game again until I found the full version as abandonware sometime back in 2004-2005. For a while I played it religiously again. I still come back a few times a year and do a couple playthroughs on various difficulties. It was great to see that it's now on GOG.com where a whole bunch of people who never knew about this game will now be able to enjoy it. Long live Tyrian!
