Wild Guns Reloaded Review
Arcade shooters were a gaming staple in the 90s; everywhere you looked and every game you played featured some kind of heavy bullet action with detailed sprites that were unthinkable before the 16-bit era. Wild Guns is a true product of the ever-popular genre that was seemingly synonymous with video games at the time. It was what every kid wanted; a space-western with the goal to shoot all bad guys that crossed your way.
Terra Feminarum Review
Terra Feminarum, released on Kalevala day, may not be as important in the cultural scale but it’s an uncanny marriage between Kalevala mythology and Japanese danmaku shoot ’em up (bullet hell shooter). The end result is as attractive and mystical as Aurora Borealis lighting up the northern skies.
Senko no Ronde 2 Review
Honestly, I'm not sure where to even begin here. Senko no Ronde 2 is an arcade shoot-em-up and fighting game put into one small package. I thought that it sounded pretty neat in theory, but ultimately the game felt just a bit too sloppy and poorly executed in order to really soothe my palate. The gameplay is rather simplistic, the visuals are a mess, and it is just not something I could really see myself spending more than a couple of hours on.
Assault Android Cactus
Assault Android Cactus is a great dual-joystick shooter for those looking for a new one. It makes some smart changes to the well-known formula and takes the genre to places it’s never been. Trying to add a story and characters on top of that doesn’t pan out for the best and the action can get a bit too chaotic to feel like you really stand a chance but those don’t take away from the overall experience too much.
