P R O L O G U E

Ok let's go back to '80s when all or almost all video games were unique, attractive and full of magnetic and frenzy gameplay.

I remember how much I was mesmerized by this particular machine when I first saw it in arcades.

How many times I skipped school just to walk in the local arcade and play with it again and again !

I remember the big stacks of coins I spent and the endless hours of wiping out the alien ships, especially the big birds which changed colors and exploded with a big BANG!

Oh man those were the days!...but just a minute!...Here it is AGAIN thanks to a group of VERY talented programmers and their achievement called MAME.(I am a faithful follower since ver.01!).Thank you guys out there for the great gift you gave me once again, for the opportunity to relive a part of my youth!..(I am now 36, not very old I hope :) ).

There is only a MAME glitch on the first bonus stage where backgrounds are supposed to disappear in the original. (Only some parallel lines left on the bottom).

Because all of the above I decided to make this tribute page , to preserve EXERION's memory and to gather every piece of info I can to help its emulation to be perfect.Of course every help wanted and every advise is a gem which will probably help to accelerate the progress.C'mon don't hesitate, contact me , I need all of you ; your memories, your playing experience, everything useful concerning the game.

Thanks to Pablo Castro (author) I have the first novel which has been inspired by Exerion, available for download here.Enjoy the reading as much as I did. (Exerion appeared in Cosmos Latinos: An Anthology of Science Fiction from Latin America and Spain by Andrea L. Bell (Editor), Yolanda Molina-Gavilan (Editor), Yolanda Molina-Gavilan (Translator) (July 2003)).

Pablo Castro is a very talented 30 years old, political scientist and science fiction writer.

Thanx for reading this...enjoy the rest!...Please also check my photo gallery !
