About PC Version
Star Keeper PC Version is a ported version of the NES Homebrew game "Star Keeper", originally released by 87Arts in 2014.the entire game is essentially built upon the NES source code with the addition of an emulator that simulates NES and cartridge hardware functionalities.

(3) Added a bonus stage where you need to collect as many stars as possible within a 115-second countdown. After the countdown ends, you will be rewarded with an extra life for every 35 stars collected.
(4) The NES music engine has been fixed to address playback issues and make the music effects more closely resemble the original FTM sound.
(5)In the PC version, a new feature called "Instantly Restart Current Level" has been added. While in the gameplay state (able to freely move), holding down the Select button will trigger the event to restart the current level. The player character’s lives and weapons will be reset to their initial state.
(6)The game now includes a password continue feature. After completing levels 4 and 6, a level password will be displayed, allowing players to continue from those levels at a later time.
