2D arcade game

'Luola' is a 2D arcade game where you fly a small V shaped ship at different levels. Its genre "Luolalentely" (Cave-flying) is (or was) very popular in Finland. Cavern-flying games are not originally Finnish, but nowdays most of them are. Luola is largely inspired by V-Wing, my favourite cave-flying game. While V-Wing's graphics might not have been flashy, they were crisp and clear, and the playability and choice of weapons was superb. This is the aim with Luola: not too much eye-candy, but solid playability.
