Strider will be hitting digital stores next month and below you can find six minutes of gameplay offscreen footage.
Looks great, absolutely my kind of game. Day 1 for me! Loved Strider 2 on the PSOne too.
I absolutely LOVE side scrollers but this games looks really boring to me. Maybe its this levels fault with the blowing wind or snow but it just doesn't look entertaining/enjoyable/fun in this video.
Some of the graphics like the white streaks that fly across screen, I guess representing cold wind, just look annoying and out of place. Still interested in the game though.
Looks realy good. Was playing some strider on the Mega Drive a couple of days ago.
Love the Strider games from my Amiga days, have been looking forward to this for a while now.
Yep. Glad to see some fellow Amiga fans on the boards. Man, sometimes I really miss those days.
I know it's not the same, but I have an Amiga emulator on my PC with a ton of games. I also recently fished out an old Quickshot joystick for which I bought a USB converter for, glad to say the Quickshot is still a joy to play games with. I also hope Sony do a awesome job with Shadow of the Beast, that was another of my favorite Amiga games.
This came a long way from the NES. This one is going to be a hit.
Strider on the NES was kind of an afterthought port. The main platform was the Genesis/Mega Drive. It was the biggest cartridge game ever at the time (8MB I think).
You're right I forgot all about the Sega Genesis. That was the one version I was referring too when I made the comment. Not the Nintendo version which was totally different if I can recall.
The NES version was still good for it's time though.
I loved the Strider for the NEW. I remember getting it and popping it in my NES and being super disappointed because it didn't look like the arcade version. At the time I didn't understand hardware or bits or anything. But while playing it, the game turned out be even better. The quests, the different power ups, wall jumps and that old school Capcom feel that made the NES great. It would have been cool for Capcom to do a HD remake of that game.
I think it was arcade first.Then nintendo dropped a version of it.I was alwayss at arcade playin the original.
Think it went Arcade - Genesis - Amiga - Nes. The arcade version was pretty different from the home versions if i recall.
I still have my sega Genesis version, which was the Arcade version, and if this version is anything like it, I'm going to enjoy it a lot. I wonder does Strider have his assistant bots they were a really cool addition.
I will buy this if it's less than 30$... If it cost more than that forget it.
I'm pretty sure it's no more than $20.
Ha! It resembles the original enough to pay proper homage. Good stuff.
