Cool words, Ken.

Thanks Felix.

Thanks Will... I think. Are you doing what right?

No, prob Masters. I found this to be a nice little read. I especially enjoyed the conclusion. I think it could apply to so many games obscure and barren games. I thought my knowledge of games was well-rounded, but I had never heard of Thexder until now. It makes one wonder, sorta like how Sho does in his Final Fantasy VIII review/fiction.

BTW, Will is striving for alliteration thanks to my unprecedented opening opinion.

Good thing you didn't play the NES version. I remember being similarly impressed--Transformers were big then--but it just didn't hold up.

Too bad it still doesn't, even on a remake.

Apple IIGS Thexder is 'da bomb', as the kids would say.

You can read a nauseating amount of technical information as to why that particular port went so well here, which is also a handy crash course on the Japanese PCs of the 80s.

Thanks for reading, fellows.

Bloomer: have you played Thexder recently, incidentally? Do you still think it's the bomb, or did you mean that it was when you played it back in the day?

I checked out your link; I remember liking Silpheed a good deal more than I did Thexder, and Ys was on another level from the two entirely.

On the game of Thexder per se - I still think it's pretty cool, but I always found it too hard. Remember that I don't play a lot of shooters, so something older like Thexder is about my scale. And I liked the discrete combo of something that looked like a platform game but was really more a shooter.

On DA BOMB comments - that was more about the IIGS version in particular being a superb game. Killer ingame sound fx and music, plays Moonlight Sonata over the title page. Just looks, sounds and plays great.

Who, aside from Masters, makes a Robotech reference? I half expect Ruder to turn up and start singing about the ludicrous amounts of days apparently included in the month of June.

I think you tackled this review well, though. It's clear that you understand the game's roots and you approuch it with respect, but aren't afraid to point out how its time in the spotlight is over, and the remake doesn't do enough to make it relevant. This earns an EmP-like thumbs up.


For us. For them. For you.

Why, thank you Gary.

Nice to have you back... more. Or something. =)

This is a great review, except that you actually liked Thexder way back when. What's up with that? You should have played that Sega Master System game with the transformable robot instead!

Thanks Zigfriend. Which game is this, if not Zillion 2?
