About the Game

Z-Exemplar is a side-scrolling shooter in the tradition of R-Type, Gradius, Nemesis and other classic arcade games from the past.

Borrowing its aesthetic from the computers of yesteryear (specifically the Sinclair ZX Spectrum) Z-Exemplar combines bright, bold, 8-bit pixel art with frantic action and an epic mission to conquer a galaxy of almost 1000 planets.


Z-Exemplar can be controlled via keyboard and is also fully controller compatible.

W,A,S,D or Arrows Keys - Up, Down, Left, Right

Space - Fire

B - Back/Base Options

I downloaded your game and had it scanned by MS Defender which resulted in a serious warning because of the Steam API.Is this a false positive?The result page is in German but I think you get the idea.
