Morphcat Games is the developer behind Spacegulls, a free game that you can play as an emulation on many platforms using an NES ROM. The original version of Spacegulls won first place in NESdev Compo 2020/21. You’ll need an NES emulation software like Nestopia or Mesen to manage the controls. This game combines elements of both Joust and Mega Man.
In this free game platform, you control gulls to avoid obstacles and enemies to complete levels while using simple commands. Your goal is to stop Dr Beak and his cyborg bird army from collecting fossil eggs in his search for eternal life. Legbreaker is another game you might enjoy if you like Spacegulls.
Download and play
Spacegulls is an NES game, which means that you can only play it on Windows by using an emulator. An emulator mirrors the original hardware for Windows users. With these ROMs, you can play retro games from SEGA, Nintendo and other consoles.
You’ll need to install the emulation software and then search for available NES ROMs. Then, you can download and save the ROM to Windows. When you’re ready to start the game, click File>Open ROM to open it in the emulator.
You use only two controls for the game, the D-pad to move and the A button to jump or fly. The controls are the same in single-player and multiplayer. Spacegulls is a fast-paced game with colourful graphics and lively music.
Spacegulls vs Legbreaker
Legbreaker has the advantage that it can be played without the need for emulation software. In both games, you move around obstacles to win each level by using simple movements. In Spacegulls, you jump or fly, but in Legbreaker, you move in different directions and jump without any control over the height of the jump. Spacegulls has colourful graphs and lively music, while the graphics and music in Legbreaker sets a sombre mood.
