Gradius is one of my favorite old school games and this looks amazing.

Gradius and R-Type are favorites of mine. They are timeless and always fun to come back to! We were really impressed with Super Hydorah. It's fantastic and I hope many give it a chance b/c it is really that good and deserves excellent sales. It's definitely tough, but really entertaining and urges you to always give that boss or level one more go.

I like the CRT monitor feature. To really hammer home those retro feels

The filter has been implemented really well, love the look =)

The screens really do look good, they nailed that old school presentation. Surprised I haven't heard more about this one.

The graphics, sound and entire presentation is gleaming with retro goodness =)

Looks a bit slow for my taste

That's interesting, which games do you like in this genre?

I'm no pro at these but I really enjoy them. For me at least, if it was any faster I don't think I would get past the first level, LOL. I've played faster space shooters, but usually their paced accordingly with how much players have to contend with on the screen. Super Hydorah balances this out well where at times it seems overwhelming but the more you die, the more you learn ;) It supplies some serious challenges for those that enjoy side scrolling shooters.

I like Einhänder, Geometry Wars, Thunder Force IV and Blazing Star. Not my fav genre, but its fun from time to time.

BootHammer242d ago

Those are some great games for sure!
