As it stands now, it's mostly a tech demo, using sprites from Tyrian.

Basically, I figured out that, since most of Tyrian player and enemy sprites are 24 pixels wide, and most of the shots are 16 pixels wide, it should be possible to show a single enemy, plus the player, plus a single shot on a single scanline without flickering issues; so as long as as the enemies move at the same speed, are spawned at intervals that prevent them from overlapping their Y cooordinates and are restricted to only move horizontally after being spawned, and the same restrictions are applied to the shots, it should be possible to use them on a Sega Master System without resizing, only reducing the color count. This is an experiment to test how it would look like.
