X-NON is a 2-player (actually also single player) split screen shooter with 2D "Asteroids" physics and gravity, originally based on the Amiga's Gravity Force.

This is actually an advanced version of the original game construct which includes computer players and many other new additions, which you can find at the bottom of this page.
