The ActRaiser series lived and died on the SNES. But was this title really worth the neglect it's experienced since? Perhaps developers seeking to blend genres should take note of this eclectic classic from another era.
I wish developers could still publish games for Super Nintendo. Looking back, that was a really classic gaming system.
Some indie developers do, in fact, still release games on retro consoles, albeit sparingly and with tiny production runs. Check out Nightmare Busters!
Yeah, it's cool, but there's just not any money in it. Best alternative is to just make indie games in the style of the generation. There have been a lot of indie games styled to the 16-bit era. On Topic: I remember seeing the screenshots of Act Raiser when the SNES launched and thinking about how amazing the graphics where. Which they were for the time. It was special to see backdrops with depth instead of black or blue... http://moarpowah.com/wp-con...
Good for you man, it doesn't get more classic than Actraiser. Simcity with a kick ass story and action packed stages! This needs an HD revamp!Or to be released on Nintendo eshop
Funny, I just mentioned this game as one of the top 5 best titles ever to grace the SNES in a recent article. Glad your enjoying it, I enjoyed it many times as a child!
One of my favorite games growing up and one of the few I purchased on VC. The 2nd ruined the genre blending of the first and killed the series though :(
Definitely one of my favorites.
sadly that was one of the SNES titles i wanted to play, but never did.
Actraiser is among my favorite SNES games, and that's saying a lot considering the other games on that list.
Actraiser and other early snes games has a special place in my heart. It was time of innocence for me before hitting full on puberty and seeking other interest. I loved the sim part of the game along with the action. When Actraiser 2 was released, it was disappointing because of the lack of sim gameplay.
Great game, and great music too. I'm probably in the minority, but I preferred the 'god' sections to the platforming sections (although they were cool too).
