Description

The original version. Move left, right and jump around the tower while dodging and/or shooting obstacles or enemies in this side strolling platform game with a twist; a literal twist. Instead of the the screen scrolling, the tower rotates. For gameplay this means a lot less of the world to the left and right is visible and there are no left or right boundaries. You can circle the tower indefinitely, provided to platforms are in place to allow it.
While the official spelling is actually Nebulus, is is very commonly mistakenly called Nebulous. The Nebulous spelling is actually used for some of the many clones.
