Game: Skull Fang (Saturn)
Posted: July 01, 2008 (08:38 PM)
Skull Fang (Vapor Trail Gaiden) is one of those games that's really hard to recommend because it has an equal balance of good and bad game design and presentation value. It's got everything a shooter needs and everything a shooter doesn't need, but the overall experience is difficult to describe.

Game: Steam-Heart's (Saturn)
Posted: June 30, 2008 (09:57 PM)
I'll admit I have pretty low taste in games sometimes especially shooters, but that's mostly due to the fact that the shoot em' up genre is sort of like Black Metal music: it always delivers whatever you're seeking and when a shooter introduces new and interesting concepts or aesthetics, then there's no denying you're getting more bang for your buck.

Game: Acrobat Mission (SNES)
Posted: June 30, 2008 (09:05 PM)
Of all the shoot emí ups on home consoles that have never seen a US release I was surprised to find out that the Super Nintendo had ported 95% of all the Shmups made for the system; the only games that never made their way to the states included three cute emí ups including Cotton, Parodious Da and Cho Ainki and only two of the serious kinds of space shooters (with Dezeamon falling somewhere in between) consisting of Rendering Ranger and Acrobat Mission, the latter of which possessing such a won...

Game: BlaZeon: The Bio-Cyborg Challenge (SNES)
Posted: June 30, 2008 (03:05 PM)
BlaZeon is one of the many SNES shooter titles that went unnoticed by the majority of the general public and after spending a lot of time with old school shmups I have to say that I agree with most that the experience of bog standard shooters like blah-zeon rival Melatonin in being making gamers drowsy, I have to say it's got a few charms scattered in its evidently flawed game design.

Game: Sinistron (TurboGrafx-16)
Posted: June 30, 2008 (02:18 PM)
R-Type clones were really prevalent back in the late eighties and early nineties; it seemed that every company save for Taito wanted to make their own horizontal scrolling space shoot em' up inundated with unique strategic fighting, aliens the size of Chicago and anal-itch inducing checkpoints, so it's safe to say that every home console system made after the Sega Master System had its fair share of R-Type clones.

Game: Metal Black (Saturn)
Posted: June 30, 2008 (01:17 PM)
Shoot em Ups have had a bad rep for a long time mostly because a lot of them seem rather similar to each other with a good majority of them taking place in space and involving silvery-white space-fighters depending entirely on power-ups to survive. Every once in a blue moon however a shooter comes along that, despite being as identical as its shooter brethren, establishes itself as one that stands out amongst the crowd with all the right aspects including a unique soundtrack, a unique theme and ...
