ST Action
Hewson's Nebulus has just about every quality that a game needs; great sound, wonderful graphics, tremendous playability and fantastic lasting appeal, and what's more, it even has an original game concept!
Atari ST User
Difficult, at times perplexing, but truly addictive. The graphics are lovely, complete with reflection in the sea below. And the gameplay is superb - I keep going back for more. This is one game which has to be played to be believed. An ideal Christmas present - put it on your list now.
Retrogaming History
In Nebulus il divertimento è assicurato e si riconferma a ben 22 anni dalla realizzazione del gioco, verificando, così, il notevole quanto sempreverde valore di un titolo affascinante e concettualmente vincente. Il fatto di poter riscoprire oggi (magari tramite il remake per iPhone: Power Toppler) un titolo come Nebulus è, infatti, una prova della natura evergreen anche in ambito videoludico di buone idee ed intuizioni vincenti.
Power Play
Grafisch läßt Nebulus den ST glänzen: Der immer wieder verblüffende Dreheffekt der Türme ist absolut fließend, wie auch das Scrolling und die Sprite-Animation. Der Horizont erstrahlt in Dutzenden von Farben. und im Wasser spiegelt sich das Spielgeschehen. Insgesamt ist Nebulus ein echter Leckerbissen für alle Freunde von Geschicklichkeitsspielen.
