When I looked up information on Syder Arcade, it promised me a return to the olden days of shoot ‘em up gaming; days of such vicious difficulty that all you could do was pray or hurl profanities at your computer screen. It promised me crushing defeat against nearly-insurmountable odds. It promised me the hopelessness of my childhood run-ins with floods of enemies that I couldn’t hope to defeat. And, dear friends, Syder Arcade has delivered on those promises.
