  • Darius Cozmic Collection Arcade (Review) Nintendo Switch

    Posted by on September 1, 2020 under Featured Review 3, Reviews, Switch
    Game developer Taito is known for its inherently long list of arcade titles, including iconic games such as the side-scrolling, hack ‘n slasher Rastan and the obscure laserdisc adventure game Time Gal (i.e. a game that played very much like Don Bluth’s Dragon’s Lair). Taito would continue to develop a wide variety of coin-ops to appease arcade-goers, but it wasn’t until the release of Dari... more.

    Posted by on August 24, 2020 under Reviews, Xbox One
    What do you get when you mix a bullet hell shmup -- or shoot 'em up, for all you shooter noobs out there -- with a kind-of-cheesy narrative of a story involving 5 sisters who are out to win an angel's heart? You get this lighthearted shooter from developer Alfa System Co., Ltd. (of "Castle Shikigami" fame) and publisher Chorus Worldwide Games. In SR: SUF, the premise of the game is that these f... more.

  • Ghostblade HD (Review) Nintendo Switch

    Posted by on June 29, 2020 under Reviews, Switch
    Developed by Hucast and released for the Sega Dreamcast back in 2015, Ghostblade HD is a 2D top-down Bullet-Hell shooter that replicates the knuckle-whitening action of most Cave shooters. Every level is packed full of enemies; large, colorful explosions; and giant, end level bosses, who occupy a good portion of the screen. Ghostblade HD for Nintendo Switch is essentially the same game as the Drea... more.

  • Sega Ages Shinobi (Review) Nintendo Switch

    Posted by on March 14, 2020 under Reviews, Switch
    Shinobi is a timeless classic that has challenged gamers of all ages for well over three decades. From its meager beginnings as an upright coin-op game - to being ported to numerous consoles and computer systems - the name Joe Musashi was once synonymous with arcade action-platforms, the same way Sonic the Hedgehog was with identifying Sega’s brand during the 16-bit console era. The same can ... more.
