Thunder Force IV - The Greatest SHMUP of the 16-bit Generation

SHMUP Master Presents: Thunder Force IV!

In this video Aggro Sky shows you why Thunder Force IV is one of the greatest 16-bit SHMUPS of all time. From a detailed examination of the game itself, to an epic boss rush at the end. You've probably never seen a Retro Gaming video quite like this before.

This video also features original covers of 5 songs featured in the game including the classic Metal Squad. Played on screaming heavy metal guitar by Julian Kogasu.

Great review! Unusually good. I'm glad to see attention given to the difficulty setting differences, parallax scrolling and music. I'd only suggest you may need a volume bump on your voice in a couple parts, like at the beginning. Sounds a little quiet there.

I wish a re-release of TecnoSoft's games would hit the modern marketplace. They had so many good ones.

Thanks! I appreciate the insight and glad you enjoyed it. And YES, I can't believe these games still haven't been released. They must be tied up in litigation between a couple different companies or something... It's sad.
